Reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who provided the information, believes the Cupertino-based corporation is attempting to reduce its dependency on other companies for modems. For those unaware, despite purchasing Intel’s modem division back in 2019, the iPhone manufacturer still relies on Qualcomm for 5G modems. The expert asserts that Apple’s range of modems will soon be available.
By 2025, the corporation intends to switch to its modems, according to Kuo. The Qualcomm X65 modem is now used in the iPhone 14 series to provide a 5G connection. iPhones and other cellular-enabled gadgets will use the new in-house 5G modems. The iPhone SE 4th generation will be the first iPhone to use this 5G modem, according to a prior prediction by Ming-Chi Kuo.
However, due to supply chain constraints, the business had difficulties with the 5G modem’s mass manufacturing. Therefore, Apple’s 5G networking technology introduction may be postponed until 2025. Apple’s recent efforts to increase its independence are mirrored in the M line of CPUs it offers for its PCs.
