    iPad Air Has Spendier Display, Costs Less to Make Than Earlier Models

    There’s a new iPad in town, and that means the folks at research firm IHS are once again doing what they do best: Taking it apart for a look inside.

    The biggest changes, he said, were with the display and touchscreen assembly. For one thing, it’s thinner and has fewer layers in the combined assembly than in previous models. But, at an estimated combined cost of $133 (about $90 for the display and $43 for the touchscreen parts), it’s a lot more expensive than before, he said. South Korean electronics companies LG Display and Samsung are both thought to be suppliers of the display, he said.

    But even with a more expensive display, the total component cost of the base model, at $274, is still $42 cheaper than the entry-level third-generation iPad. That’s because not much else inside the iPad has changed drastically since then.

    Yes, there’s a new Apple chip, the A7, but at an estimated cost to Apple of $18 (Samsung still manufacturers it for Apple under contract), it costs five dollars less per unit than the A5 processor did 18 months ago.

    All told, IHS estimates Apple’s implied gross margins on the iPad to range from 45 percent on the 16GB Wi-Fi only version to 61 percent on the 128GB LTE version.
