Apple Ditches Qualcomm to Produce Its Own Network Chips for iPhones

Apple Is Expected to Strike a Deal With TSMC to Produce Its 5g Modem Chips

After ditching Intel, Apple has already taken the world by storm with its current M1 Pro and M1 Max SoCs lineup. New reports reveal that Apple doesn’t want to stop here and plans to ditch Qualcomm in favor of its in-house manufactured networking chips for the iPhone and iPad.

According to reports by noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will be developing its own 5G modem, replacing the current Qualcomm one for the iPad and iPhone. While Kuo seems confident that the said the swap would happen in 2023 “at the earliest.”

Thanks to newer reports by Nikkei Asia that claim that Apple is expected to strike a deal with  TSMC to produce 5G modem chips for its upcoming lineup of iPhones.

The report also says that Apple will be using TSMC’s 4-nanometer process to build a 5G modem with millimeter wave technology combined with its power management chip. This will make sure that everything runs smoothly without affecting the battery life of the devices.

Overall, it’s a very welcomed move as this will allow Apple to vertically integrate its supply chain, even more, allowing Apple to keep a closer eye on the quality and supply of its devices. Keeping things in-house should also allow better integration across Apple’s product range to enable faster speeds and lower latency.

While this move also seems to be quite significant in times of the global chip shortage crisis as it will help Apple secure its interests in the long term while ensuring a stable supply of chips. Seeing this move, we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple even starts producing its display panels in the future, ditching Samsung and BOE, Apple’s current display panel suppliers.
