tl; dr, the manufacturing unit that makes your iPhone makes more cash on the field ($10+) it is available in than it does on the telephone ($~1) inside.

I used to work with a bunch of the CM’s that construct… nicely, all the pieces. Again in 2013-2014 the iPhone 6 was popping out and the manufacturing contracts had been simply beginning. The three primary gamers then and now had been Hon Hai, Jabil, and Flextronics. Between the three of them just about the entire main assemblies, prototypes, and completed items would get made.

Lengthy story brief, it price $200-$300 to make an iPhone 6. The reminiscence prices distinction was basically nothing. Relying on the precise mannequin, they might handle the distinction through firmware. The bigger screens had been a a lot bigger price driver, however not as a lot as the upper price ticket. The fee was extra as a result of adjustments to the manufacturing line, fixtures, and stock administration than the precise price.

Essentially the most attention-grabbing half I discovered was that the CM solely made single-digit on every iPhone they bought. At the moment the contract was awarded based mostly on the value of the completed telephone, however not the packaging. The bids for the packaging got here later and netted the manufacturing unit greater than $10/field.
