Apple is ditching Qualcomm and designing its own antenna for the 5G iPhone

Apple and Qualcomm are still having communication problems.

What you need to know


Apple is reportedly working on its own antenna instead of using Qualcomm.
Qualcomm's 5G antenna apparently did not fit in the housing of the new iPhone.
The new iPhone will still use Qualcomm's 5G modem.


Rumors continue to swirl around this year's new iPhone, which is expected to be unveiled in September and be the first iPhone to feature 5G connectivity. In an interesting report by Fast Company today, Apple is apparently trying to design and implement its own 5G antenna into the iPhone.

The 5G modem and antenna for the new iPhone had, up to this point, been expected to be completely supplied by Qualcomm. That reportedly changed when Apple got its hands on the antenna and attempted to make it work with its new phone.


  "Apple balked at the QTM 525 millimeter-wave antenna module offered to it by Qualcomm because it doesn't fit into the sleek industrial design Apple wants for the new phone."


Aft...
