What are you, braindead? Apple is insanely greedy. They have some of the highest profit margins in the industry. They also just so happen to have some of the most advanced products on the market, but even then the quality control is sometimes less than satisfactory considering their price points.

The higher costs would be passed onto the consumer, if there was room to.

"Samsung Electronics recently asked Apple for a significant price raise in (the mobile processor known as) application processor," the person was quoted as saying in the report. "Apple first disapproved it, but finding no replacement supplier, it accepted the (increase.)"
