In his latest teardown of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything estimates that there's approximately $30 worth of titanium in Apple's latest top-tier iPhone.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts aerospace-grade Titanium, the same Titanium used on the Mars rover Perseverance.
With the introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra, Apple brought over this material to the iPhones. By reducing the weight of the otherwise bulky iPhone 15 Pro models by 10% compared to their predecessors, the company has been able to lower the weight of the otherwise bulky iPhone 15 Pro models.
It's not just the weight reduction that users will appreciate - according to Nelson, the titanium design takes 'extreme skill and expertise' to work with.
A former Windows head is stunned that an iPhone 15 can offer a desktop-like experience.
