Apple plans to adopt TSMC’s 4-nanometer chip manufacturing technology to mass-produce its first 5G modem chip, along with the development of its own radio frequency and millimeter-wave components to complement the modem. Apple is also working on its own modem-specific power management chip so that it no longer has to rely on external suppliers.

TSMC would already be testing the production of the first prototypes supplied by Apple, so as to be ready for 2023. With this move, Apple will be able to move away from Qualcomm, which in these days has admitted that the supply of modem chips for the iPhone could decrease in 2023 .
