Apple iPhone 5 costs around USD 200 to manufacture

Wednesday 19 September 2012 | 14:21 CET | News
Apple's new iPhone 5 carries a bill of materials (BOM) of USD 199.00 for the low-end model with 16GB of NAND flash memory, according to a preliminary analysis by IHS iSuppli. When the USD 8.00 manufacturing cost is added in, the cost to produce the iPhone 5 rises to USD 207.00. For the 32GB version of the iPhone 5, the BOM cost increases to USD 209.00, while 64GB version is estimated at USD 230.00. That compares to retail prices of USD 199 for the 16 GB model, USD 299 for the 32 GB model and USD 399 for the 64GB model. The cost of materials is slightly higher than the last version of the iPhone, due mainly to the display technology, new A6 processor and addition of LTE, according to IHS iSuppli. Apple is expected to employ Qualcomm's second-generation MDM9615 baseband processor, which is made with a more advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology and helps reduce power consumption.
