The CEO of Apple has often reiterated his policy and aim to own and be able to create the technologies which run behind all Apple products. Apple is gradually ascending towards that path. As reported by Bloomberg, Srouji has stated that after the first cellular modem made by Apple, a series of others are in the making.
This means that Apple’s new 5G iPhones might not be needing Qualcomm chips at all as reportedly they have been creating their own modems for the iPhone.
It is not surprising as earlier this year Apple surprisingly broke off a partnership of fifteen years with Intel which resulted in Intel having a loss in shares. Qualcomm shares have also had a decline after the news broke out.
The customers were highly satisfied with the new chips by Apple in their Macbooks and desktops. Their performance was exceedingly well and outperformed Intel’s modems. Hence the stakes are high for the chips made for the iPhones too. And it is expected by analysts to have better quality and increase battery time. The new iPhone might have a design which holds Qualcomm chips and another that can hold Apple chip.
Although these moves might affect other chip owners that Apple was previously and is currently in partnership with, Apple is steadily moving towards a path of self-sufficiency for the company.
