5G

It has been one of the Apple’s flagship strategies, dedevelop your own chips to stop relying on third parties and do what they want with their devices. A great business success whose maximum splendor we could see with the launch of the M1 processor of the Macs. Previously, Apple managed to develop the CPU chip of its mobile devices such as the iPhone, and of the GPU, great successes from which we all benefit by have the most competent devices. The next thing: the modem, Apple will stop depending on third parties at the connectivity level. Keep reading that we tell you the details …

And this is not something new, this was already discussed earlier this year (our friend Ming-Chi Kuo pointed to it), and the goal is for Apple to stop depending on third parties to develop its own modem chip, a chip that they say will arrive in 2023. Let’s remember that currently Apple depends on Qualcomm for these modems and in Cupertino they suffered some other problem with Qualcomm in the development of the 5G modem mainly due to manufacturing and licensing problems. Obviously this modem Not only would it give us 5G, it would also integrate Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

Not an easy path through all the requirements that you have to meet due to all the different standards that exist in mobile data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, It is not only worth that they are compatible with the latest standards, it also has to do with the previous ones. It is also important how they manage the battery, although to be honest I think this is the problem that worries the least in Cupertino since with the latest chips are achieving unprecedented energy efficiency. Nikkei Asia claims that this Apple modem will arrive in 2023 and will be developed together with TSMC. We’ll see what they surprise us with …
