September 24, 2013: Apple iPhone BOM

So, looks like the 5c is $26 cheaper to make. That makes sense because the intent is to be a mid level phone. Now take that thought a step further and compare it to the original 5. The original 5 uses the same process to make the metal exterior as the 5s. What does this mean? This extensive tooling can stay and be used for the 5s while new plastic injection molding tooling can be made for the 5c.
