The iPhone XS Max is estimated to cost Apple $443 to make, according to a teardown report from TechInsights.

The site highlights several exciting new features of the iPhone XS including the TSMC 7 nm FinFET fabbed Apple A12 Bionic chip with its new 8-core Neural Engine, a second generation Apple-designed GPU, an Intel CDMA-supported baseband processor, new CMOS Image Sensors, and new Face ID components.

Some of the increases in cost from the iPhone Xs to the iPhone Xs Max are in the areas of baseband, larger OLED display, larger battery, more non-volatile memory, and a significant increase in the cost of non-electronic components. The iPhone Xs Max has larger, heavier housings than the iPhone X, and the internal frame carries more process costs around spot welds, inserts, etc.

Interestingly, TechInsights says the higher cost of the larger display is tempered by the removal of some 3D touch components previously found in the iPhone X. It's unclear what those parts are.

This is very interesting figure.....Is that how much actually cost to build the phone? And if this is true how it comes to the users with $1000 more? Don't tell me because has premium design and quality because there are smartphones out there with better quality.

Those are just the cost of parts - I am no cost analyst/expert, but there is more to it - such as process/delivery, taxes, labor, legal, admin, supply, blah blah, child labor, blah, bu77 plugging taxes, luxury fees, touch my leg fees, etc., you name it....
