iPhone 15 series may not utilise Apple’s 5G modem

Previously, Qualcomm had only expected to contribute 20% of the 5G modem chips for the next iPhones in 2023; however, the company now anticipates that it will retain its current market share. The statement confirmed that Apple would not employ a design that has an internal modem for any of its products in the next calendar year.

Along with a number of other enhancements, it was anticipated that Apple’s iPhone 15 series will incorporate the company’s in-house 5G modem. According to the source, Qualcomm has formally stated that it would continue to offer 5G modems for the majority of the forthcoming iPhones. These modems will be used in the next-generation iPhones. Earlier, the company’s goal was to provide around 20% of the 5G modems for iPhone 15 models.

According to assertions that were made in Qualcomm’s earnings report on Wednesday, the company had previously only intended to provide 20% of the 5G modem components for the new iPhones in 2023; however, the company now aims to retain its existing market share. The statement confirmed that Apple would not employ a design that has an internal modem for any of its products in the next calendar year.

According to the publication, Apple has apparently been working on the development of its own own 5G modem from the year 2020. The delay, however, was due to the fact that it faced a number of obstacles. Over the course of the last year, the prototypes had issues with “overheating.”

According to the well-respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple “may have failed” to develop its own modem, which will need the company to continue to depend on Qualcomm for the foreseeable future. Last month, an analyst working for Haitong International Securities named Jeff Pu speculated that Apple’s modem would not be ready in time for the launch of the iPhone in 2023 or 2024.

According to many sources, Apple is considering removing the conventional power and volume buttons from the iPhone 15 Pro variants. Instead, it’s possible that Apple may equip the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max with power and volume buttons made of solid state. In addition, it is anticipated that the firm located in Cupertino will introduce a new naming scheme for the iPhone 15 Pro Max. It is speculated that it would feature a body made of premium titanium and be given the moniker iPhone 15 Ultra. Titanium, which makes the phone lighter, stronger, and more scratch-resistant than steel, will give the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone, the iPhone 15 Ultra, a more opulent look and feel than its predecessor.

In addition, in response to a regulation enacted by the EU, Apple has stated that it will transition to using USB Type-C for charging iPhones. It’s likely that Apple will include USB-C support on iPhones with the launch of the iPhone 15 series later this year. In addition, it is predicted that Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would feature an increased amount of RAM in comparison to their respective forerunners.
