In case you didn’t know, Apple has long been developing its own 5G modem to become it even more independent, Contractors in the world of smartphones. However, it appears that the project ran into some issues. These aren’t all too serious issues, but they do represent some of the complexities of the current smartphone market.
Let’s try to understand!
Apple is having trouble implementing its own 5G modem
As you may know, Apple took over the “5G Modem” project from its former partner Intel in late 2019, with obvious plans to “take the ox by the horns” to develop its own modem, modeled on TSMC.
So far, it has always been expected that Apple would introduce its first 5G modem in the 2023 iPhones in the alleged Apple A17 Bionic. However, it seems that this modem needs to be left out of the SoC, which is of course an obvious plan B of the company as it is a strategy that is contrary to what all of the major telecommunications companies have tried in the world of smartphones .
Although 5G “by Apple” is still being planned, everything indicates that it will not be the desired implementation of the American giant of the cracked Apple in 2023. But that still means the iPhone from 2022. In other words, the iPhone 14 will be the last generation of smartphones with Qualcomm modems. Another great Apple partner that is saying goodbye to the iPhone and its ecosystem.
Besides, what do you think of all of this? Would you like to see how Apple controls everything that goes into the iPhone? And thereby remove all ‘foreign’ companies, as is the case here at Qualcomm? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
