In an effort to replace the Qualcomm modems now found in its products with its own modems, Apple recently purchased a Broadcomm division.
Due to various factors, the switchover was delayed, but the Cupertino-based tech giant is now back on track and getting ready to deploy its own modem and chips. Follow For More Updates at satiknews.com
According to a recent Bloomberg article, Apple has been working for years to replace Qualcomm modem processors on its iPhones, and wants to start doing so as early as 2024.
Apple had originally intended to switch to utilising its own modem chips for iPhones this year, or in 2023, but because its development efforts had not yielded the desired results, it opted to delay the switch and continue using Qualcomm until its own solution was produced.
The development of modem chips has experienced delays, and Apple will employ a gradual rollout to wean itself off of Qualcomm. Before extending the deployment to further devices, Apple will begin by utilising its modem in a single device. Up to three years may pass before Qualcomm is completely replaced.
