Apple's iPhone 8 Plus Apparently Costs $295 To Make

Apple's iPhone 8 Plus Apparently Costs $295 To Make

If mass production of the iPhone X continues to be hampered, it's very likely that it will be very hard to buy the iPhone X at launch.

Just as expected, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have 2GB and 3GB of RAM like their predecessor, but both batteries are actually smaller than previous year. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which were launched globally recently, couldn't bring too many buyers as it's expected that Apple fans are waiting for the iPhone X.

Shares of Apple dipped last night and flirted with correction territory following a report that the company had told suppliers to scale back shipments of parts for its upcoming iPhone X. The iPhone 8 apparently costs Apple $247.51 in materials. Its components cost $288.08, including a new camera system that costs $32.50. Earlier this month, Susquehanna International Group estimated that the bill of materials for the iPhone X was $581 for the 64GB version.

Apple will officially open preorders for the iPhone X on October 27 and the device is expected to start shipping and be available in-stores on November 3. This shows that the cost of materials for building a base model of iPhone 8 has increased this year.

To see if this claim is true, website Tom's Guide has placed the new iPhone 8 in a speed test against Samsung's Galaxy S8. The larger iPhone 8 Plus was found to be a bit more fragile, earning a breakability score of 74.

Amy Hermann told police he shot her twice and tried to fire the gun several more times but it appeared to have misfired. Greg Feldman was found in his vehicle Monday night in the parking lot of a Wawa store in Schuylkill Township.

Now we have some details on how much it costs Apple to make their new iPhones. The new version starts at $799, compared with $769 for last year's model. Apple has spent $31.20 and $27.50 respectively on NAND memory by SanDisk and A11 Bionic processor.

Demand for the iPhone X has been high since the launch and it has been predicted that Apple may struggle to keep up with the high demand for the smartphone.

According to the Tom's Guide test, which involved adding transitions and effects before exporting, it took the iPhone 8 just 42 seconds to whizz through the task. The listing further reveals that the iPhone X is backed by a 3GB of RAM.
