If the rumors around are to be believed then Apple is preparing to leave Qualcomm and launch its own 5G modem chip. And this is slated to happen within two years. As per MacRumors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that from 2023, Apple is going to stop using Qualcomm completely and launch their custom 5G modem chip. He said that the 2023 iPhones of Apple will be having the 5G modem design. As of now, Qualcomm gives the 5G modem that they are present in the latest iPhones i.e. the iPhone 12 series. This doesn’t surprise us as it was long been heard that Apple is working on its own custom 5G modem chip.
Long back there was a dispute between Apple and Qualcomm because of a patent infringement. The case was won by Qualcomm and a billion dollars was won by them out of a court settlement with Apple. Although Qualcomm started friendly relation with Apple again, Apple wasn’t okay with it. Since then, it was being heard that Apple was trying to make its own 5G modem chipset. Before resolving the issues with Qualcomm it was also heard that Apple had asked Intel to make a 5G radio chipset that they could use in their first 5G iPhones.
Intel had almost finished developing the chipset but due to some unknown reason, they did not meet the deadline. After that Apple and Qualcomm reached a middle ground and Apple stopped their deal with Intel.
Previously, a Barclays investor report had also said that Apple would use their own 5G modem design for the first time in their 2023 iPhones. The latest reports have just confirmed this previous news. Kuo has also said that losing Apple as a client would be a huge setback for Qualcomm. It would be difficult for them to continue having big clients in the 5G modem space among Android OEMs. Kuo said, “Qualcomm will be forced to compete for more orders in the low-end market to compensate for Apple’s order loss.”
