Qualcomm announced today that Apple will continue to use Qualcomm 5G modems for the iPhone at least through 2026, two years longer than what the company had previously declared to investors.

The statement confirms that the original schedule for the Apple 5G modem has been pushed back from the initial 2024 release window, following internal delays with Apple’s modem chip development.

Qualcomm says that it now expects to supply only about 20% of the modems needed for Apple’s 2026 smartphone launch, which indicates that we may see the first Apple-designed modem arrive with the iPhone 17 or 18.
