Just yesterday Skype rolled out an update for its iOS 8. The update brought support for the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile platform called iOS 8.

The logic provided was believable, Apple already has a streaming service in iTunes and it doesn’t make sense for it to run two similar services. Apple rubbished the report by saying that it was “not true,” but didn’t go beyond those two words. Then a report suggested a possible rebranding of Beats Music, which is now believed to be unveiled in February.

iphoneteardownWhile a recent teardown of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus points to 1,810mAh and 2,915mAh batteries stashed underneath the hood, respectively, here we are with another teardown that points to a rough guesstimate of how much Apple would have had to fork out to build each new handset. So far, the $200 mark had not been breached in the past where estimations were concerned, with different iPhones speculated to cost anywhere from $188 to $199 thereabouts.
