Gross Margin On iPadMini
Starting from a 16GB Wi-Fi, Kuo says that the BOM and manufacturing costs of this iPad mini will start from $195 and will range up to $254.50 for the 64GB, LTE + Wi-Fi edition. If you are wondering as how this analysis has been made, then it is to tell you that, this deduction has been made on the basis of educated guesses, existing price and component lists from other Apple devices, and reported suppliers of parts for this new tablet. The prices were then compared with the expected pricing of the baby iPad. From all this working the final point that came to surface says that Apple will be enjoying a gross margin of 40.73 percent at the low end, and 61.38 percent for the fully loaded iPad mini.
If we compare the gross margin of iPad mini with other products then we find that Apple took a gross margin of 68 percent for entry-level devices, and 72 percent for its most expensive model. While for the recent iPad, it carried a 36.66 percent gross margin for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, and a 50.70 percent margin for top-end devices.
