Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Cost : The estimated cost to Apple ( AAPL ) for each iPhone SE has been revealed , reports MacRumors. A teardown of the device specifically looked at the costs of each separate part of the new smartphone and found them to be valued at a total of $156.20 for the 16GB version. This was then rounded up to $160 to take into account for manufacturing costs. The 16GB version of the device is sold for $399.
iPad : A teardown of Apple's 9.7-inch iPad Pro shows a device with little wiggle room inside , AppleInsider notes. The tech company had to move around many of the components in the new iPad Pro to make it all fit inside a 9.7-inch shell. This resulted in the device being very compact on the inside. The teardown claims that this makes it harder to repair. The LCD and front panel glassed are fused together. This makes it easier to open, but also increases the risk of damage when doing so and the price of repairing that part of the tablet.
Sales : A report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that iPhone sales will be down in 2016 , reports 9to5Mac . According to the report, Kuo is expecting the company to sell less iPhones in 2016 than it did in 2017. He also believes that the iPhone 7 won't be able to surpass the iPhone 6s in sales when it's released. The analyst claims that the only major appeal of the rumored smartphone will be the addition of a dual-camera system, and that this may not be enough to convince users to upgrade from the iPhone 6s line.
