This year, Apple cancelled the practice of adding chargers and earphones in the iPhone box, and also lowered or reduced the price of the iPhone 12 series models in disguise. However, in addition to the reduction of accessories in the box, the cost of parts for iPhone 12 series models seems to have also been reduced. According to a report by Nikkei Asia News , the cost of parts for the iPhone 12 Pro is only US$406, which is much lower than the US$490.50 of last year's iPhone 11 Pro Max ( TechInsights report).
According to reports, the most expensive parts in the machine are Qualcomm's X55 5G data chip and Samsung's OLED display panel. The combination of the two is $90, which accounts for almost a quarter of the total parts cost.
And because of this, among the parts of the iPhone 12 Pro, most of the cost is attributed to South Korea and the United States, especially South Korea accounted for 26.8%, the United States 21.9%, and Taiwan only accounted for 11.1%.
