Apple reportedly ‘failed’ to make 5G modem chip for 2023 iPhone model

Apple has been trying to develop its own 5G modem chip for quite a while now.

Apple has reportedly ‘failed’ to develop a 5G modem chip and it will rely on Qualcomm chip for 2023 Apple iPhones.

According to known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the tech giant's efforts to develop a 5G modem chip ‘may have failed’

and Qualcomm will likely remain the main supplier of Apple iPhone 15 series which is expected to launch next year.

Kuo believes that Qualcomm will supply 100 percent of chips for the 2023 ‌iPhone‌ models, rather than the company's previous prediction of 20 percent.

“My latest survey indicates that Apple's own iPhone 5G modem chip development may have failed,

so Qualcomm will remain exclusive supplier for 5G chips of 2H23 new iPhones,

with a 100% supply share (vs. company's previous estimate of 20%).” Kuo wrote on Twitter.

Kuo also believes that “Apple will continue to develop its own 5G chips,
