Apple will continue to develop its own 5G-modem In early April, Apple and Qualcomm entered into a settlement agreement, thus ending a multi-year standoff. All lawsuits were withdrawn, and Apple had to pay substantial compensation to sign a contract for the supply of advanced 5G-modems from Qualcomm. But despite this, in Cupertino did not abandon their ambitious plans to develop their own cellular module.

In early April, Apple and Qualcomm entered into a settlement agreement, thus completing a multi-year confrontation. All lawsuits were withdrawn, and Apple had to pay substantial compensation to sign a contract for the supply of advanced 5G-modems from Qualcomm. But despite this, in Cupertino they did not abandon their ambitious plans to develop their own cellular module.

Apple will continue to develop its own 5G-modem The settlement agreement with Qualcomm was only a matter of time, according to The Information experts. The fact is that Intel modems were originally a compromise solution. Apple thought about changing the supplier back in 2017, when the development of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR was in full swing. According to a source in TheInformation, Intel has upgraded its own-developed four times the modem – all in order to meet the high standards and requirements of Apple. But even in this situation, the chip maker modems were inferior to Qualcomm. The logical result is that Intel stopped the development of cellular modules.

It was then that the decision was made to develop its own modem. But according to internal documents, the company was preparing to provide a cellular module not in the next few years, but only in 2025. Thus, from the very beginning of the confrontation, Apple understood that it would have to put up with Qualcomm, despite all the differences. After all, only in the arsenal of this manufacturer there are the most advanced solutions, including 5G-modems.

However, Apple will continue to develop its own 5G-modem. To accomplish this task several groups were organized. As previously reported, hundreds of engineers are working on the development, whose activities have unfolded at the site of the Innovation Center in San Diego.
