Apple has emerged in the headlines for developing its own 5G modem and using it for future iPhone devices. But it seems as if the tech giant is making some changes to this plan. As per the inputs, Apple iPhone will continue to use Qualcomm chips until 2026.
Eventually, the report confirms that the Apple 5G modem is dealing with some delay issues and has been pushed back from the initial 2023 release frame. On the other hand, Qualcomm says that Apple requires 20% of its chips for 2026 iPhone units.
Thus, the American tech giant may release the first Apple-designed 5G modem with the iPhone 17 or maybe the 16th series. Note that this timeline could again some shifts in the coming days. Let’s see how this matter progresses and what will be the next step of Apple for its self-developed modem.
