Apple extends Qualcomm baseband chip license to 2027

According to MacRumors, Qualcomm said on the earnings call that Apple has extended its baseband chip license agreement with Qualcomm until March 2027. Apple's existing agreement has been extended for two years, which means that future generations of iPhones will not have access to Apple's self-developed 5G baseband.

Apple has spent the past few years developing its own 5G modem chips in-house. This technology will allow Apple to no longer rely on Qualcomm's 5G chips, but Apple has experienced several delays in developing its own 5G baseband projects.

In November 2023, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman said that Apple's work on modem chips has been delayed until late 2025 or 2026, and may be delayed further.

Apple originally aimed to launch an Apple-designed modem chip by 2024, but has so far failed to achieve that goal. Subsequently, Apple hopes to introduce the modem chip in the iPhone SE launched in the spring of 2025, but judging from the current progress, this goal is unlikely to be achieved.
