Apple iPhone 12 Pro's Bill Of Materials Comes Up To $406

Apple Shells Out Rs. 30,000 To Make iPhone 12 Pro’s Hardware Components

On the other hand we have the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the largest screen that an iPhone has had according to the company and that reaches nearly 3.5 million pixels of resolution, with a peak of 1200 nits of brightness. This shows that the BoM for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are less than half of the original price for the two devices.

The story comes up with a figure that shows that the BoM for Phone 12 pro is $406 and BoM for iPhone 12 is $37.

For comparison, the Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro now start from $799 and $999 in the US.

We've known for a while that iPhones are among the most expensive smartphones on the market, and if you're wondering how, it's all because of the typical mix of component costs, research and development, and Apple's very own margin. After this, it's the OLED display from Samsung. While the report doesn't explicitly say that the iPad Pro range will get 5G mmWave support, Apple traditionally introduces high-end features first in "Pro" range. The components like RAM and flash memory are said to cost $12.8 and $19.2 per unit. These parts of the iPhone 12 Pro have been sourced from various countries, where the majority of them are coming from the USA, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.

As usual, the offer excludes many of Apple's newer products, including Macs with the M1 chip. The cost of these sensors per unit is around $7.4 to $7.9. However, Japanese teardown experts Fomalhaut Techno Solutions suggests that the iPhone 12 may not be that expensive to build. It is also interesting to see that Apple only sources over 4 percent of the components from China.
