Fast Technology, November 30 news, according to domestic media reports, Apple may have to give up 5G baseband research and development, although it has not been confirmed, but this is indeed possible, just think about Nvidia at that time.
According to sources, Apple's self-developed 5G baseband has encountered problems again, and the overall development process is not smooth, and the earliest launch time will be at the end of 2025 or early 2026.
Apple's self-developed 5G baseband is still in its early stages and may be several years behind its competitors-ldquo;-rdquo;, even if it comes out with embarrassing problems, as competitors are starting to focus on the 6G era.
At present, Apple has two main difficulties in developing its own 5G baseband: the first is the Intel legacy code, which needs to be rewritten by Apple, and the addition of new features may disrupt existing functions; the second is to be careful not to infringe Qualcomm's patents in the process of developing the chip.
In the view of people in the industry, baseband is easy to do, but in order to ensure its stability in dealing with signals from different countries and regions, it is necessary to do a lot of repeated testing work, which takes a lot of energy and manpower.
At that time, Nvidia withdrew from the mobile processor market because the baseband link was not well handled, so it is not surprising that Apple has encountered a similar situation.
