Parts To Make An iPhone 5 Cost Around $167.50

Buying an iPhone can be pretty expensive, especially if you purchase one off-contract. But it looks like it doesn’t really cost that much to make one, so why all the markup?

The iPhone 5 costs roughly $167.50, while the 4S is only about $35 less to manufacture.

According to 9to5Mac:

UBM Electronics owns TechInsights and news website EE Times, which first reported the story; the analyst firm’s preliminary data is based on specs released by Apple at its San Francisco event earlier this week and teardowns of older-version 16 GB iPhones. According to the results, Apple’s A6 processor is the priciest component part at $28.

There are several factors to look at here. Apple isn’t ripping us off, but they do need to make a profit. They also must account for shipping costs, overhead, the start up fees associated with manufacturing, etc …

While they are making a killing selling iPhone 5’s, I think that Apple focuses on more volume of sales to create profits than the markup of the device itself.

Check out the full report here at EE Times.
