23 sec read

It costs about the same for Apple to make the iPhone 5s as it did to make the iPhone 5 last year. This comes from a dissection of the device and a cost analysis. We’re not sure how this is useful but it’s great for trivia.

While the iPhone 5S includes a handful of new features that set it apart from Apple’s previous model, the actual cost to make the phone hasn’t changed very much, according to a new study.

An IHS teardown of the new smartphone found that the components that make up a 16GB iPhone 5S cost $190.70. Manufacturing costs add another $8, bringing the total production cost to $198.70.
