    @Oodum 10 minutes is the cutoff for when you can have multiple ads in a video

    @DavyDave1313 except this video is bullshit. The $600+ price he quoted is for a NEW phone, unused, unopened, new. You CAN'T resell your beaten up used phone for even half of that price.

    The iPhone X costs about 370 dollars to make.You’re welcome.

    @Victor Sosa the key is IOS and always has been and it was Steve's jobs brilliant idea because it's vertically integrated into the hardware and there's only one piece of hardware that will work it like I said people are slaves to iOS and will pay any price to use it.

    I know right, I just hate the fact that Apple makes things explicitly overpriced when it was cheaper for them to build those things

    No, it was just a good segue. He does that with every video. It's just that when people aren't interested in the main topic they mischaracterize that.

    This guy sounds like a politician. 13 minute video to answer a 5 second question.

    Because technically he's a "politician of advertising".

    @anders burgess No, but what does that matter? I clicked on a video to learn what the iPhone actually costs to make. That's what I was interested in, but I had to watch 9 minutes of random trivia to get to that point. The other stuff, while somewhat interesting was fluff. I wanted a video that the title claimed to explain, not 200 other random facts about life to get to the actual thing I wanted to learn about.

    Also metaphorical cost to Apple's business model, but mainly cost with regard to resale
