Apple reportedly plans to build its own modems for iPhones Apple might be finally looking to build its own modems. The Information said Apple is actively looking to build modems targeted toward iPhones.

Additionally, the company has posted multiple modem hardware- and firmware-related jobs in the past couple of months for its Berlin, San Diego, and Beijing locations. Apple‘s relationship with Qualcomm has hit a sour patch in recent years with a string of lawsuits.

Report: Apple plans three new iPhones, one may have three rear cameras

Apple will introduce a triple-camera iPhone this year and another lower-priced LED model, according to the Wall Street Journal. Despite supposedly sluggish sales of its current iPhone XR LED model, the news means the company still wants a diverse mid-to-high range lineup. Like most other manufacturers, Apple is experiencing a slowdown in the smartphone market as consumers upgrade less often.

Apple has several dual-camera smartphone models now, but other manufacturers including Huawei and LG already have devices with at least three. Samsung even released a mid-range model, the Galaxy A7, with a triple rear camera setup. Adding a third camera would let Apple offer more consumer-friendly photography features like telephoto closeups and improved "bokeh" blurred backgrounds. A three-camera iPhone has been rumored before, as shown in the render below.

Apple is working on a new triple-lens camera that could feature 3 D sensing and other important features. Another analyst believes Apple is planning a major innovation for next year's iPhones . Huawei's P20 Pro sports three rear lenses, allowing it to offer a 3 x optical zoom.

While most of the rumors pertaining to Apple ’s supposed triple-lens iPhone have so far pointed to a late 2019 release at the earliest, a new report alleges that this year’s flagship iPhone —the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus—would also come outfitted with three rear -facing cameras .

According to the WSJ, Apple isn't necessarily keen to build another budget-oriented XR device. However, the next model has been in development for months already and it would be too difficult and costly to switch gears. By 2020, it plans to build all of its iPhones with OLED displays, which offer superior contrast and color reproduction.

iPhones are looking less competitive every year against models from Huawei and other companies that are now at least as technologically advanced. In that sense, it'll be interesting to see how it proceeds over the next year to try to regain its advantage. In the meanwhile, though, it still has to sell iPhones, so it seems that XR devices will remain until at least 2020.
