Next MacBooks could use Apple modem — and say goodbye to Qualcomm

Apple has started working on its own cellular modem that would replace the current Qualcomm chips, according to a recent Bloomberg report. Johny Srouji, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware technologies stated as much at Apple’s recent town hall meeting with employees, which immediately affected Qualcomm stock, dropping its value 4.4% in early trading. 

Johny Srouji also stated, “This year, we kicked off the development of our first internal cellular modem which will enable another key strategic transition,” he said. “Long-term strategic investments like these are a critical part of enabling our products and making sure we have a rich pipeline of innovative technologies for our future.”
