Apple’s self-designed 5G modem is said to be unveiled in all iPhone models in 2023

According to Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Thomas O’Malley, Apple’s custom-designed 5G cellular modem is likely to appear in all iPhone models in 2023. In a supplier-focused research report shared by him, analysts said that chip manufacturers Qorvo and Broadcom should be one of the companies that would benefit from the shift to Apple’s internal solutions.

Several sources, including Fast Company’s Mark Sullivan and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, reported that Apple is developing its own modem for the future iPhone. According to reports, Apple acquired a year ago, Intel’s most smartphone modem service after 2020 began to develop modem.

Barclays previously stated that the modem will support 5G sub-6GHz and mmWave two frequency bands, which is also expected. Apple currently uses Qualcomm modems, including the Snapdragon X55 modem in the iPhone 12 model. In 2019, the legal settlement agreement between Apple and Qualcomm showed that Apple may use the Snapdragon X60 modem in the iPhone in 2021, and then use the Snapdragon X65 modem in the iPhone in 2022.

The roadmap does mention the possibility that the iPhone will use the unannounced Snapdragon X70 modem in 2023, but it now seems unlikely. Apple’s modems are likely to be produced by its long-term chip manufacturing partner TSMC.
