This Is What It Costs Apple To Build An iPhone 5S
Apple spends between $191 and $210 on each iPhone 5s that is produced. Add the $8 per unit cost of assembly, and the costs rise to between $199 and $218.
The iPhone’s costliest component remains the display, at $41 per unit. The new fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5s costs just $7 to produce per handset.
Without a contract, the iPhone 5s sells at prices ranging from $649 to $849, depending on storage capacity.
