Last Tuesday, the experts from TechInsights estimated that Apple’s cost to produce the 256 GB iPhone XS Max ($1,249) was just $443, including the price of all the components as well as the costs for testing and assembling. This is just about  $50 more than the costs for last year’s iPhone X with 64 GB.

And Unsurprisingly, the huge OLED display is the phone’s most costly component with $80,- followed by the (A12) processor and Intel modem for $72. Then comes the memory for $64.50, the mechanical parts and the housing for $58 and finally the cameras for $44.

According to research company from Canada, the removal of some of the 3D touch components – which makes the apps respond differently based on how hard the user presses the screen  allowed Apple to save around $10 off the iPhone XS Max build of materials.
