Where form meets function

In a recent report released by media company, Bloomberg, we are offered our most comprehensive look at exactly what lurks, and what has lurked under the bodies of Apple’s pioneering iPhone. As one of Apple’s crowning achievements, causing mass hysteria whenever released, and inundating the world’s electronic consumer market, it is safe to assume that this piece of gadgetry has become an imposing omnipresence.

As the fuel to countless industries, the Apple iPhone is arguably one of the world’s most successful consumer goods to ever hit the shelves. True to his words, Steve Jobs really did “reinvent the phone,” to such a degree that it might even be hard to imagine a world without the iPhone, or even Apple full stop. Thoughts of a world without such technology might seem frightening, and even dystopian to some degree.

Having partnered with iFixit, IHS Markit, Simple Mac, and an iPhone repair shop in New York, Bloomberg was able to compile one of today’s most encapsulating reports on the typography of the iPhone. Given its very own page, the full report can be viewed here, with concise breakdowns of exactly how much keys elements of each model cost. Be warned, some of these prices might shock you when taken in relation to how much a top-of-the-line iPhone now goes for.

Let us know your thoughts on the aforementioned report, and what you think lurks underneath the hood of the iPhone X.
