5G Is Coming To Apple’s iPhone By 2020

Listen To This Article:

Tech giant Apple will be getting 5G technology in iPhone by 2020, according to a source. Now the question is which company will supply 5G modem chip for the iPhone? Intel or Qualcomm? Apple is planning to use Intel 8161 chip to the iPhone. The chip name is “Intel 8161 5G modem“. Now Intel is developing a replica chip named “Intel 8060“. This chip is for the only testing purpose. After that, they will develop a final version and that will be implemented on iPhone.

Apple is not satisfied with the fact that they are implementing this technology very lately. The main reason is the heating issue. Intel 8060 chip has a heat dissipation issues. So that’s why it needed more time to solve this issue and make a stable chip.

On the other side, Apple also has plan B that is MediaTek. If Intel fails to create this chip then Mediatek is the second option for Apple. MediaTek is a Chinese company, they are also making 5G modem chip.

Let’s talk about the spectrum. Apple got permission to test technology in the millimeter-wave spectrum. Some wireless carrier including Verizon and AT&T will initially rely on the millimeter-wave spectrum (between 30 gigahertz and 300 GHz) to connect the first 5G phones. This millimeter-wave signal also has a problem. That is creating heat inside and outside the phone. That causes much battery drain.

What do we expect?

We know that it takes some time to create a stable 5G phone as it is new technology. So we have to wait until it’s widely available.
