For the iPhone 12, the company is spending a little more than 310 euros, for the iPhone 12 Pro parts Apple is spending 30 euros more.

Fomalhaut Techno Solutions tore down an iPhone 12 Pro and determined that the costs of the various components total $406, according to NikkeiAsia.

Do note that, the iPhone 12 Pro costs Rs. 119,900 in India, making it one of the most expensive iPhones, especially for the 512GB storage, which costs nearly Rs. 1.5 lakhs. The result: The components of the iPhone 12 cost Apple 313 euros - the market price of the iPhone 12 in Germany and some European countries is around 875 euros. Its display is similar to its more expensive siblings but its form factor is much, much more compact.

On the other hand we have the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the largest screen that an iPhone has had according to the company and that reaches nearly 3.5 million pixels of resolution, with a peak of 1200 nits of brightness.

Then comes the A14 Bionic, which costs Rs. 2,954 per unit and components like RAM and flash storage costs Rs. 945, and Rs. 1,418, respectively.

Most of the parts used on the iPhone 12 come from South Korean companies, while Europe and the United States share the runner-up spot. Also, the bill of materials doesn't include software, and iPhone sales (with some help from iPad) must cover all the expenses for developing iOS/iPadOS and its bundled software. Unlike many Android phones, Apple definitely makes a good profit on each iPhone it sells across the world.
