• Apple’s most recent iPhone 14 models use Qualcomm modems, but the company has been looking to go solo in the wireless connectivity market for some years.
  • It bought Intel’s modem business in 2019 and there had been speculation it would begin using in-house parts this year.
  • Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon also addressed the U.S lawsuit filed against Qualcomm by British semiconductor firm Arm.

Apple is moving to in-house 5G modem chips for its 2024 iPhones, as far as the chief executive of Qualcomm — which currently produces them for the tech giant — is aware.

"We're making no plans for 2024, my planning assumption is we're not providing [Apple] a modem in '24, but it's their decision to make," Cristiano Amon told CNBC at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
