Topping the bill is the iPhone 4's LCD display, at $28.50 - while the phone's celebrated gyroscope runs Apple just $2.60.

iSuppli has performed teardowns of each of Apple's iPhones - the 3GS' estimated BOM was $170.80; the 3G, in 2008, was estimated at $166.31; and the original iPhone in 2007 was said to run Apple $217.73.
