What can be the cost of Manufacturing?

This unit is very affordable and probably just as efficient. It makes me wonder what the true cost of an Apple iPhone in 2021? I think its really possible that my iPhone 12 Max Pro all in costs under $200.00 while charging over $1200.00. I would like to see phones made to run on the IOS platform i the same way Android operates for all of the brands. Its surprising that Apple has not been Class Action sued to open up and allow real competition on the Apple platform. Samsung has their own proprietary software as well. Hasn't the patents run out yet?

You make some valid points but Apple is a profitable company because they charge $1000 for phones that everyone needs and you are correct, the Bill of materials is probably around $200. When they charge $100 more for a certain memory configuration, that cost to them is around $10-15. I do not see iOS running the same as Android, they would never allow it, and Samsung uses Android, but they have their own "UI" layer on top. The companies that run pure vanilla Android are the ones that get my money. Apple is indeed the devil.
