Why Rising iPhone Prices Could Hurt Apple in the Long Term
27 September, 2017, 00:29
The iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of memory carries a bill of materials (BOM) cost of roughly $288.08, IHS said, higher than any previous version of Apple's iconic phone. Plus, as long as the iPhone retains its tech je ne sais quois, you'll be paying a zeitgeist premium for it. Costs for software and research and development aren't factored in these estimates.
Lower iPhone 8 sales would not be a problem - in fact, they'd be great news - if the higher priced iPhone X was stealing those sales. Apple has spent $31.20 and $27.50 respectively on NAND memory by SanDisk and A11 Bionic processor. Apple claims the displays themselves are new, so I wouldn't be surprised if detailed testing showed fundamental improvements in areas such as color accuracy and brightness over the display on the iPhone 7 Plus. A new teardown offers us the answers. A Chinese regulatory filing has revealed that the iPhone X will have a slightly bigger battery than the iPhone 8 Plus.
To recap, Apple broke with tradition this year and unveiled not two but three new iPhones - the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, already on sale in the UAE, and the iPhone X, which hits stores in November.
