For the past few years, Apple has been working to develop in-house modem chips, and in 2023 we may see the introduction of Apple-designed chips. Right now, Apple is using Qualcomm’s modem chips, but after a legal dispute in 2019, Apple is keen to stop buying Qualcomm chips.
In November 2021, Qualcomm’s CFO said that Qualcomm expected to supply only 20 percent of Apple’s modem chips by 2023, and that since Apple has no other modem chip suppliers, that suggests that Apple’s modem technology is not available to Apple. is about to be launched. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that Apple chips could debut in 2023 iPhone models.
We don’t know anything about Apple’s modem chips right now, but the technology will probably be on par with or better than the 5G chips Qualcomm is producing if the A-series and M-series chips are any indication.
