Apple renews with Qualcomm for three more years to provide it with microchips

Date: May 22, 2024 Time: 17:12:54

New agreement between Qualcomm and Apple. The largest supplier of chips for mobile phones, announced this Monday that it will supply the giant Apple with modem chips for its future mobile phones, in this case for the launches of its iPhone models until 2026.

“Qualcomm Technologies has signed an agreement with Apple Inc. to supply Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF systems for smartphone launches in 2024, 2025 and 2026. This agreement reinforces Qualcomm’s track record of leadership in 5G technologies and products,” it said. the company in a statement.

Currently, Qualcomm supplies Apple for its iPhones, but Apple has been working to build its own modems to move away from Qualcomm chips. Meanwhile, experts take this change as a sign that the apple company’s effort to manufacture them internally has not yet borne fruit.

Qualcomm and Apple have not always had a good relationship, as they faced legal problems over the supply of chips, as the apple company alleged that Qualcomm required it to pay excessive patent fees to purchase the chips. The companies settled their differences in 2019 and reached a long-term patent license agreement and a supply agreement.

Following the 2019 deal, Qualcomm acquired that it would supply only 20% of the modems in Apple’s smartphones that would be released this year, while Apple worked on their replacement.

With today’s new deal, according to ‘The Wall Street Journal’, Qualcomm is expected to take on just 20% of the modem chips for Apple phones through 2026.

According to the specialized press, it is most likely that Apple will announce tomorrow, at its annual event, its new iPhone, probably called iPhone 15, and that they will use Qualcomm modems.
