Buying a new iPhone is not a pleasure for everyone. How much does the flagship cost Apple itself? Good question. TechInsights decided to give an answer. Its experts disassembled the top-end iPhone 11 Pro Max.

TechInsights found out the price of each component. It turned out a curious thing. The cost of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is $ 490.5. This is more than last year's iPhone XS Max. The assembly of the predecessor went in $ 443.
The difference with retail is twofold. Recall that in the United States for the iPhone 11 Pro Max they ask from $ 1099 (in the basic configuration with a minimum of memory). What is the most expensive in the device? You will be surprised – a triple camera.
For this module, Apple pays suppliers $ 73.5. The next most expensive display is $ 66.5. In third place is the Apple A13 proprietary processor. It takes $ 64 to produce one chip.

Other parts are cheaper. However, there is a nuance that many miss. TechInsights does not include Apple’s research, advertising, distribution, hardware, and software costs.
Plus – iPhone 11 Pro Max should make a profit. Otherwise, this is not business, but charity. So the 490-dollar smartphone turns into a 1099-dollar one.
However, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is worth the money. The authoritative DisplayMate recognized its screen as the best in the world. According to tests, the device surpassed the Samsung Galaxy Note10 +.

As a result, the iPhone 11 Pro Max received the DisplayMate Best Smartphone Display Award. Rarely does anyone brag about it. In addition, the gadget has an excellent battery.
The device was compared with the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy Note10 + and Huawei Mate 30 Pro. In terms of autonomy, the iPhone 11 Pro Max outperformed its competitors. He was discharged later than his rivals – after 8 hours 32 minutes.
