According to IHS iSuppli’s teardown of the iPhone 6s Plus, the bill of materials for a 16 GB version comes to $231.50, with manufacturing costs and other minor items raising the overall price slightly to $236. IHS Technology has taken apart the iPhone 6S Plus to estimate the actual cost of components used in the device. However when compared to the battery of the iPhone 6 there hasn’t been that much improvement. IHS said the cameras cost $22.50 on each apparatus. “Inside the phones, they [are] always totally different, and that’s always interesting to us”, said Rassweiler.
Apple customers participating in an upgrade program that the company introduced over the weekend may receive a new iPhone for monthly installments that start at $32. The pre-booking will be open till October 13, the company said. According to the patent details, “flexible electronic device may include a flexible display, a flexible housing and one or more flexible internal components configured to allow the flexible electronic device to be deformed”. “Samsung with its Galaxy line has been increasing its costs every year“. Despite being labelled as water resistant with a rating of IPX7, the Apple Watch has actually proven to be far more resilient in real-world tests. “In this case, they definitely seem to be spending more”. Apple still hasn’t released any information on sales for the iPhone 5C, but that year, Apple noted its lowest growth since the original iPhone launch. Both come with the 3D Touch technology. Apple’s new iPhones went on sale on September 25.
Earlier this week there was a video that surfaced which showed the new iPhone 6s staying submerged underwater for an hour. The front-facing camera has also been upgraded. Apple has a new feature called 3D touch which impacts how hard you push your screen and this may have to do with it, but that remains to be seen.
