Apple Puts 5G iPhone Plan in Motion
Apple is projected to take the wraps off the very first iPhone with 5G support next year, and according to a new report, the company has already reached out to suppliers to adjust their production plans for the manufacturing of this model.
Nikkei reveals via unnamed sources that Apple is “mobilizing suppliers” for the production of three iPhones with 5G support.
The report also reiterates previous speculation that the first 5G iPhones will use chips manufactured by Qualcomm. However, it’s believed Apple wants to manufacture its very own 5G modems for the iPhone, and people familiar with the matter said earlier this year the aim was to bring these chips to the market beginning with the 2022 iPhone generation the earliest.
