“An iPhone generates approximately $650 in revenue for Apple,” Horace Deidu reports for Asymco. “This figure has remained fairly steady over time. Using deduction from overall margins, it’s possible to estimate the gross margin on the product to be around 55%.”
Deidu reports, “That means that the cost of goods sold (COGS) for the iPhone is about $293.”
“Manufacturing costs for the iPhone are likely to be much higher than comparable devices,” Deidu reports. “This is partly because of the design of the product and partly because of the quality testing needed.”
