Problems Apple Inc. (AAPL) Stock Faces After the iPhone X Debut

While Apple did not explicitly mention this feature during the iPhone 8 and iPhone X's announcements, it was later discovered that both phones will support fast-charging, albeit with a caveat.

But the unsubsidized price of the 64 GB iPhone 8 starts at $699, which is a $50 markup over the starting price of the iPhone 7 at launch. In contrast, the iPhone X is expected to take a huge hit in profitability - despite its hefty price tag - because it's insane expensive to build. While the cost last year's model was 270,88 dollars.

The manufacturing cost of the iPhone X could be close to, or even higher than, the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

According to estimates from research firm IHS Markit, the bill of materials for the iPhone 8 is $247.51.

Apple is paying 149 service charges for iPhone 8's screen exchange and $ 169 for iPhone 8 Plus's screen exchange.

To make matters worse, the iPhone 8 is getting poor reviews.




The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, despite possessing the world's best smartphone camera system, have seen disappointing sales in the first day and week of worldwide sale.

Total product cost of the iPhone 8 Plus totals US$295.44, which is just about 37% of its US$800 retail price tag.

Numbers don't mean a great deal to Apple, which never likes to flaunt a processor's clock speed or the RAM count and battery capacity of a new iPhone or iPad. That said, Apple runs a very tight ship and is known to squeeze every last drop of efficiency out of its devices, meaning the difference won't be too noticeable, if at all.

"The added value went to memory, camera, and processing".

The 2017 iPhones are all powered by Apple's latest chip, the A11 Bionic, which includes an integrated GPU to enable machine learning capabilities.

A popular new feature is the facial recognition. That technology - used among other things to create a detailed map of people's face so the phone can recognise its owner - uses far more sensors than in similar phones and is as a result much more sophisticated to make.
