Apple estimated to make $134 more profit per phone on 512 GB iPhone XS compared to base model

28 days ago   |   By 9to5Mac

Data reported by Bloomberg indicates that Apple is estimated to make around $134 more profit per phone on the 512 GB models of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, than the 64 GB base models.
