According to a recent report from DigiTimes, the upcoming iPhone in 2020 from Apple will feature Qualcomm’s brand new X60 5G modem. The same type of rumor appeared in around 2019 when Apple was reputed to feature a Qualcomm X55 5G modem. Although this time, it looks certain. So, without further ado, let’s talk about this in a bit of detail.

Given the information provided in the report, the world’s largest chipmaker and Apple supplier TSMC will start constructing Apple’s A14 chips and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X60 modems later this month. These chips are built on the 5nm process and will be used in the upcoming iPhone 12 series later this year.

 Snapdragon X60 5G modem

Now, as we know, the Apple A14 chips are built on the 5nm process so, the Snapdragon X60 modem will be much more power-efficient in comparison to its predecessor, the Snapdragon X55. Moreover, the 5G network will consume more battery while running the new standards of mobile networking. So, the Snapdragon X60 will reduce power consumption on the iPhone, providing you longer battery life.

Not only that but, the Snapdragon X60 modem also supports both mmWave and sub6GHz bands concurrently to obtain a combination of high speed and low latency. But, so far, Apple has not said anything officially about whether they will use this modem or not. This step will require a lot of time and patience. So, we advise you guys to take this information lightly as Apple could use this modem on 2021 iPhones too.
