Apple Is Making a Hefty Profit on Each iPhone 8 Sale

Basically, that means the iPhone X is identical to the 8 Plus in terms of random-access memory and processing power, gaining an nearly unnoticeable 41mAh of battery juice. For replacement of glass behind device, iPhone 8 does not have a service charge of 349 for 8 model and $ 399 for iPhone 8 Plus model. Ditto a SIM-free iPhone 8.

Gerrit Schneemann, senior analyst for mobile handsets at HIS Markit says: "The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and later the iPhone X, are important devices for Apple and anticipation is running high".

Let's go over both factors. And that iPhone is neither the iPhone 8 nor the 8 Plus. Some companies, including Pegatron and Hon Hai Industry Precision, have posted double-digit stock price declines since the iPhone X launch on September 12. We have been saying for months that Apple was having yield problems with the screens and the world would be lucky to see an iPhone X before 2018. The special edition iPhone X will launch worldwide in November. Apple has spent $31.20 and $27.50 respectively on NAND memory by SanDisk and A11 Bionic processor. The 8 Plus costs $799, $30 more than the iPhone 7 Plus at launch.

Indian online retailer Flipkart hasn't missed the opportunity to tap iPhone 8 buyers - if an individual buys the phone on Flipkart, he will get a guaranteed exchange value by paying a token Rs 9. A breakdown of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus detail just how much it costs Apple to build the devices.

It's all good stuff.

The iPhone 8 Plus components cost $288.08, while manufacturing adds a $7.36 for a total of $295.44. Nevertheless, I don't see anything in these phones that should be unusually hard to manufacture, outside of, perhaps, the new glass body. IHS Markit has more than 50,000 key business and government customers, including 85 percent of the Fortune Global 500 and the worlds leading financial institutions.

Jeff Pu, an analyst at Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting, also identified 3-D sensors as the only major issue left in the production of iPhone X.

So, is the iPhone 8 series a failure?

Indeed, I'd rather show friends and family photos taken with the iPhone rather than the Note 8.

Following Apple's latest event announcing new iPhones and other products, some have bemoaned the high-cost of the products.

But to be clear, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus probably weren't created to be Apple's flagships.

How will the iPhone X's battery life under real-life usage? That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys.

Apple shares are up 1.14%.
