Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Apple intends to offset this additional cost by reducing its supply chain expenses.

5G components are projected to raise the production cost of the new iPhones by anywhere from $30 to $100.
Kuo states that Apple intends to offset this additional cost by reducing its supply chain expenses, including dropping its upfront non-recurring engineering payment to suppliers of the redesigned metal chassis and frame for 5G iPhone, news portal iMore reported recently.
Kuo believes that Apple intends to bring this, along with other areas of external research and development, in house.
As per recent report, Apple is also reportedly planning to include a custom battery protection module with the iPhone 12, which is said to be almost 50 per cent smaller and thinner than the one being used in current and old iPhones.
The reduction in size could result in more free space for a slight increase in battery capacity.
JP Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee believes that Apple will release a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch iPhones and one 6.7-inch iPhone with 5G connectivity in 2020.
Chatterjee predicts the company may introduce two high-end models (one 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch) with support for mmWave, as well as a triple-lens camera and "world facing" 3D sensing for improved Augmented Reality capabilities.
While, two low-end models (6.1-inch, 5.4-inch) will not have mmWave or World facing 3D sensing, and will have a dual-lens camera.
