Report: iPhone 6 Plus costs only $15 more to manufacture

Although Apple sells the iPhone 6 Plus at a $100 premium over its smaller sibling, a new report from research firm IHS cited by Bloomberg suggests that the larger iPhone 6 Plus model actually only costs Apple an additional $15.50 to manufacture. The report notes that main cost increase comes from the larger screen, although the camera and battery components also cost slightly more. It goes on to note that both iPhone 6 models are still more expensive to manufacture than the iPhone 5s, however, despite the decreasing costs of components such as camera and memory chips.
