Apple is starting the Christmas season with a completely renewed product range.

Above all, the new iPhone 12 should boost profits, as a look at the hardware costs shows.

  • Because of the

    corona

    pandemic,

    Apple

    only launched its new iPhone with a delay this year.

  • But

    the group is now able to deliver just in

    time for the important

    Christmas

    business.

  • That should give the

    Californians

    a big

    jump in

    profits.

Munich - The tech giant

Apple

* is a winning machine.

In the past fiscal year alone, the Californians made almost $ 221 billion in sales and an operating profit of $ 66.3 billion.

This corresponds to an operating margin of 24.1 percent.

Most hardware manufacturers can only dream of this.

But

Apple

knows how to arouse desire and can be properly paid for.

This is also shown by a look at the current

iPhone

*.

According to an overview by the Japanese business newspaper

Nikkei

in cooperation with the market researcher

Fomalhaut Techno Solutions

, the components in the current top model

iPhone 12

cost

a total of 406 dollars, or around 341 euros.

In the store,

Apple

charges 1120 euros for its entry-level version of its flagship.

Of course, the difference of 779 euros does not correspond to

Apple's

actual profit

.

After all, the Californians still have to cope with the costs for development, software, production, logistics and the generous marketing budget compared to the industry.

But even so, something should get stuck on each iPhone.

Apple: trouble with police - bribery allegation against global security chief

Meanwhile,

Apple is

in

trouble with the police

at its headquarters in

Cupertino

.

On Monday, the

Santa Clara

District Attorney's Office

charged

Thomas Moyer

,

the company's global security chief

, with attempted bribery.

According to this, the deputy police chief of Santa Clara is said to have asked Moyer to 200 iPads with a total value of around 70,000 dollars in the summer of 2019.

In return, he promised Moyer to

benevolently examine

the company's applications for four gun

licenses to be issued

to

Apple

employees.

In contrast to most US states, citizens of

California are

only allowed to carry weapons in public if they are in possession of a concealed weapons permit (CCW).

Apple

firmly dismissed the prosecution's suspicions.

They expect “full integrity from all of our employees.” After the allegations became known, a “comprehensive internal investigation was initiated.” In doing so, “no mistakes were made”.

The top management of the Santa Clara police force has long been the focus of investigators.

According to the public prosecutor's office, Sheriff

James Jensen

and his deputy

Rick Sung

are said to have

repeatedly demanded consideration for the granting of gun

licenses

in recent years.

At the beginning of January, the two police officers, Moyer and an insurance broker from the region now have to

answer

in a court in

San Jose
