[gearbest News] We have previously reported that because Apple is not satisfied with the QTM 525mm wave antenna module provided by Qualcomm, Apple may use its own antenna in the 5G version of the iPhone, but will still use Qualcomm's modulator chip SnapdragonX55 baseband. And not only will the iPhone 12 use the Qualcomm X55 baseband, it is reported that Apple has recently signed a four-year purchase agreement with Qualcomm for 5G chips, and Apple will need to buy Qualcomm's 5G modulators for the next four years.

On Feb. 18, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) released a document revealing part of the supply agreement signed between Apple and Qualcomm: Apple will buy Qualcomm's 5G baseband for at least the next four years. Among them, X55 baseband is used from June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021; x60 baseband is used from June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022; X65 or X70 baseband is used from June 1, 2022 to May 31, 2024.

 
Apple will buy Qualcomm 5G Baseband.

Previously, due to the slim design of the new iPhone, the 5G antenna provided by Qualcomm could not be well integrated, so Apple decided to develop its own internal antenna system, but would still use the antenna model provided by Qualcomm as an alternative. If Apple succeeds, its antenna will be used in conjunction with Qualcomm's 5G modulator. As for the settlement between Apple and Qualcomm, some netizens joked, "it seems that the signal of iPhone 12 and iPhone in the next four years has stabilized!"
