iPhone 16 Will Use Apple’s Own 5G Modems, Qualcomm CEO

mm

Apple has been in the news recently for various incidents such as banning ChatGPT based apps and many more. Now recently Apple has again come into the latest news as there are rumors that Apple is going to use its own 5G Modems with iPhone 16 model according to Qualcomm CEO. Apple has always been at the forefront of technological innovation, and the iPhone has been a prime example of this. With the upcoming release of the iPhone 16, which might be next year or so, Apple is once again pushing the envelope by using its own 5G modems. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what this means for the iPhone 16.

According to reports, Apple will stop relying on Qualcomm, which now supplies the modems, and instead create its own 5G modem chips for the 2024 iPhone. We anticipate an Apple modem chip to replace Qualcomm ones in future iPhones as Apple continues its shift to its own technology, and it looks that could be the case with the iPhone 16.

The CEO of Qualcomm, Cristiano Amon, said that his business has no plans to supply modems to Apple in 2024, but he noted that the tech giant is free to make that choice. Qualcomm and Apple have a history together which might interfere with this decision.

Apple complained that Qualcomm was “doubledipping” by selling it a semiconductor while also requesting a patent royalty charge for the usage of the same chip’s technology. Everything became a disaster. Apple was accused of extortion by Qualcomm.

The two firms’ CEOs met in a “hostile” fashion. Qualcomm declined to provide Apple with CPUs for the iPhone XS and XR. Both businesses abandoned prior settlement discussions and vowed to fight the case all the way to the end, which lead to a trial worth billions of dollars.

Apple had a plan to temporarily switch from Qualcomm to Intel modem chips while it developed its own radio chip. However, that strategy failed when Intel said it was giving up on the 5G smartphone modem market.

According to reports, Apple will stop relying on Qualcomm, which now supplies the modems, and instead create its own 5G modem chips for the 2024 iPhone. Apple opted to carry on for an additional year after Qualcomm notified investors in 2021 that it did not anticipate offering modems for the iPhone in 2023.

It has been rumored that Apple would begin utilizing its own components this year after purchasing Intel’s modem division from the corporation in 2019 for around $1 billion.

According to Amon, Qualcomm had previously informed investors that it would not anticipate producing modems for the iPhone in 2023; nevertheless, Apple ultimately elected to continue for an additional year.He said that royalties were “independent from delivering a chip,” although he did not explicitly state if Apple would pay Qualcomm QTL licensing if it switched to its own modems.

Until next time, with another topic. Till then, Toodles.
