Apple is reportedly preparing three new iPhones to launch in 2020, including two with 5 G support provided by Qualcomm, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo. Apple is also reportedly building its own 5 G chips to launch in either 2022 or 2023, according to Kuo.

Three of Apple’s phones will release with 5G connectivity next year with Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem, Nikkei reports. This modem will reportedly be paired with a new Apple chipset — likely to be called the A14 Bionic — that’ll be the first from the company to be built using a 5-nanometer process.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors that Apple is planning on releasing its first 5G phones in 2020, nor is it the first time we’ve heard there’ll be three of them. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo made a similar prediction back in July. What’s new are the reports of the exact Qualcomm modem Apple plans to use after the two companies settled their ongoing legal dispute back in April. In the longer term, Apple is thought to be working on its own in-house modems having acquired the majority of Intel’s smartphone modem business in July.

Apple tells suppliers to ramp up production of iPhone 11, report says

  Apple tells suppliers to ramp up production of iPhone 11, report says Who would have guessed a lower price would entice more people to buy a phone?"This autumn is so far much busier than we expected," an unnamed source that apparently has knowledge of the situation told Nikkei. "Previously, Apple was quite conservative about placing orders. After the increase, prepared production volume for the iPhone 11 series will be higher compared to last year.

The first customer for those chips will reportedly be Apple , which is seeking bleeding-edge processors for its 2020 iPhones , while other companies continue to roll out larger 7nm chips to power early 5 G smartphones and AI applications. While today’ s news is expected, it ’ s significant in that

Apple ' s recent announcement that it would no longer disclose iPhone sales on a quarterly basis prompted some investors to question Apple ' s ability to increase sales of The 8161 will be fabricated using Intel’s 10- nanometer process, which increases transistor density for more speed and efficiency.

The report also corroborates previous rumors that Apple is planning to switch to a 5nm fabrication process for its chips next year, moving away from the 7nm process that it’s used since the A12 Bionic chip debuted in 2018. Apple rival Huawei is also thought to be working on a 5nm chip of its own that’s set to launch in a similar period next year.

As well as 5G connectivity and a new chip fabrication process, next year’s iPhones are also expected to be Apple’s first redesign of its flagship phones since 2017, and could feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. In addition to its three flagship devices, Apple could also release a low-cost successor to the iPhone SE towards the beginning of the year.
