At the end of last year, Apple joined an alliance engaged in the development of 6G and next-generation cellular technology standards. The timing of the launch of the 6G standard is still unclear, but some analysts believe that this technology is 100 times faster than 5G.
These recruitment notices once again show that Apple will continue to promote independent research and development. The company designed the main processors for the iPhone and iPad and applied these processors to the Mac last year. The company is also stepping up the development of its own custom screen and camera technology and has designed wireless chips for AirPod and Apple Watch.
Apple began developing its own custom modem last year, which can connect mobile phones to wireless networks.
Johny Srouji, head of Apple’s custom technology and chip business, said at the staff meeting in December last year,
“Such long-term strategic investment is a key part of our products and can ensure that we have a wealth of innovation in the future Technical pipeline.”
Although Apple has laid the foundation for becoming a 6G technology, as 5G technology is in the ascendant, they still need to take many measures to fully realize the potential of this technology. The company has not yet applied 5G technology to other devices such as Apple Watch and iPad. The company’s first modem may use 5G technology.
