Apple working on all-in-one WiFi, Bluetooth chip; custom 5G modem in 2024

10 January 2023 3

The rumors of Apple working on custom modems are nothing new as they have been making rounds for a long time. The latest report from Bloomberg suggests Apple has set plans for releasing a 5G modem by 2024. It is further said to be working on an all-in-one chip with WiFi, Bluetooth, and cellular capabilities.

The Cupertino-based tech giant wants to reduce its dependency on Qualcomm which has been supplying modems for iPhones. It is also responsible for providing 5G modems you get on compatible iPhone and iPad models. The move to develop a custom 5G modem will not only reduce its reliance on a third-party supplier but will also help it save money. It was initially rumored to start using the custom modem in 2023 but the plan has now been pushed back to 2024.

Its roadmap further includes an all-in-one chip that will deliver cellular, Bluetooth, and WiFi connectivity. The decision will allow the company to reduce its dependency on Broadcom. Its plan is to release a chip with only Bluetooth and WiFi support in 2025. It will be followed by an improved version featuring additional cellular connectivity but its release timeline has not been specified.

Apple has already been using custom A-series chipsets for iPhone and iPad for over a decade now. It recently switched to custom M-series processors for MacBooks, iMac, and select iPad models. It is clear that Apple prefers to have control over various aspects of device manufacturing. Even though development plans are underway, it will take some time before these chips actually make their way to the market.

I get paid over 190$ per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing..
:) AND GOOD LUCK.:)

I get paid more than $90 to $100 per hour for working online. I heard about this job 3 months ago and after joining this I have earned easily $21k from this without having online working skills . Simply give it a shot on the accompanying site…

I earn $100 per hour while taking risks and travelling to remote parts of the world. I worked remotely last week while in Rome, Monte Carlo, and eventually Paris. I’m back in the USA this week. I only perform simple activities from this one excellent website.
