The Apple iPhone will equip in a few years
5G Epoch will begin in 2019. Ready for it, not only vendors of mobile devices, but also to those companies which produce components for them. Among them - Qualcomm and Intel. iPhone, which from year to year, happy Apple, are very popular. As you know, the iPhone uses Apple's own chipset development. And, according to a new report, tehnogigant Cupertino begins work on other important components of its future mobile devices.
It is possible that Apple is going to develop its own modem, allowing the company to have the alternative to Qualcomm products. This conclusion is based on a number of Apple's job, which is looking for engineers developing mobile chips, said Chaim Gartenberg (Chaim Gartenberg) in the pages of theverge.com resource.
Apple's looking for engineers to design modems
Two of the area - for "Architects cellular modem systems", one - in the Santa Clara, the second - in San Diego, where Qualcomm is located main office.
Perhaps, Apple is developing its own modem for future iPhone, which would help the company, with its own technical solution, no longer needs the help of his long-term partner.
However, as reported in addition, a new modem will appear only after a few years. Even the iPhone in 2020 with the support of 5G will be equipped with modems for the fifth-generation networks, developed by Intel. If the company is only now beginning to hire staff for the new project, it is logical to assume that it will take several years until the finished chip appears. It should be noted that the leading supplier of modems on the world market are Qualcomm and Intel.
What modems Apple equipped the iPhone XS and the XR
Traditionally, Apple in its devices use a modem of these companies. For iPhone XS and XR, Apple has opted for the Intel modem. However, according to recent research Ookla, Qualcomm Snapdragon modem 845 provides a markedly higher rate - 40% faster loading and a 20% - for outgoing traffic.
As a result, many experienced users prefer the iPhone with modems from Qualcomm's, and not from Intel, that is - the version of the previous generations.
Apple already has considerable experience in the development of its own line of mobile processors A and if the company will supplement its chips also own modem, it will have full control over the base hardware of their devices. It should be noted that the most notable competitors tehnogiganta from Cupertino - Samsung and Huawei's - have been using chipsets not only, but also proprietary modems.
