pp Apple really is developing its own production cell, reports Reuters, citing sources in the company. For these purposes, even a team of engineers was formed, previously engaged in designing iPhone hardware. The new division was headed personally by Johnny Srudzhi, senior vice president of hardware technology, under whose leadership the branded mobile processors of the A series were created.

img According to a source, active development of the cellular module began in January 2019 . Indirectly, this is confirmed by the new vacancies of engineers and specialists posted on the official Apple website. The description of the position indicates that the prospective applicant must have knowledge of millimeter radio waves, as well as experience in designing wireless chips.

Without any doubt, the decision to develop your own communication module is strategically correct, and it will definitely pay off in the long-term perspective. This will solve at least a few problems:
Such a move will allow Apple to move away from direct dependence on other manufacturers; The company will be able to monitor and control each stage in the development, which will ensure close integration with the software and the best user experience; Manufacturing your own modems will cost the company much cheaper than buying ready-made chips from other companies.
At the moment, the corporation buys modems for the latest iPhone models from Intel. Previously, most orders fell on the shoulders of Qualcomm, however, due to court proceedings, both parties were forced to cease cooperation.

According to experts, the first iPhone with a proprietary communications chip can see the light in 2020-2021. It is assumed that the new modem in its functionality will be superior to the development of competitors.
