How much does it cost to manufacture an Apple iPhone 8


An iPhone 8 drive with 64GB storage capacity costs Apple about $ 247.51 ($ 210) . As for the components of the iPhone 8 Plus, its cost reaches 288.08 $ (244 €) .

To compensate for the increased cost of materials and components of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple has had to raise the prices of its new smartphones. The iPhone 8 is available from € 809 while the iPhone 8 Plus costs € 919.


From IHS Markit explained the changes thus:

    "The added value has gone to memory, the camera and the processor. That's where we can materially identify where the product has improved, and why they may demand a higher price for it. "

For example, the new bionic chip A11 costs $ 5 more than the processor of the previous generation. The wireless charging module costs $ 2 more and the 256GB storage capacity option costs $ 6 more per unit.

It should be noted that IHS Markit analyzes and estimates cover only the cost of materials and components of the iPhone 8. They do not include the costs of research and development, design, engineering, marketing, software creation or distribution.

Recently, in an interview, Tim Cook mentioned that "Apple is not for the rich" and the final price of the iPhone 8 proves it. However, the iPhone X of the tenth anniversary itself will have a much higher cost , above € 1,000.
