Apple to phase out Qualcomm services and switch to branded 5G modems by 2023

Last year, information appeared on the network that Apple was developing its own 5G modem. Now renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted the release of the first smartphones with these modems.

As a reminder, Apple currently uses Qualcomm’s 5G modems. According to the analyst, both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, which will be released this year and next, respectively, will continue to use these modems.

But already in 2023, the analyst is sure, the first iPhone with a modem of its own production will appear on the market. By the way, the same terms are called by analysts of Barclays. And, it should be noted, this is a very realistic term.

Apple modems are expected to offer faster speeds, improved latency, and other benefits over Qualcomm or Intel modems. The company has every opportunity to do this, because back in 2019 it bought most of Intel’s modem business, which “will help accelerate the development of future products and allow Apple to differentiate in the future.”
