Turns out Apple's new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are more alike than you might think, according to the research firm IHS, which took both devices apart to check out the internal components.
The 16GB iPhone 5S, which features the fingerprint sensor, costs Apple at least $199 to build and the 64GB model costs the company about $218 to make, according to IHS data shared with All Things D.
Apple's iPhone 5C, though, doesn't cost that much less to produce than the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5C costs between $173 and $183 to make, according to IHS. The devices are similar in production cost because they really aren't all that different.
