Apple will equip a 5G modem, not only iPhone 13, but also future iPad Pro
The 5G modem developed by Apple will be ready by the second half of the year and will be used not only in the iPhone 13, but also in one of the iPad Pro 2021. Recently, there were rumors that in the second half of next year, the California-based company will release an iPad Pro with an OLED matrix. Apparently, it is he who will receive the Apple branded 5G modem.

Initially, the iPad with 5G connectivity was expected before the end of this year. However, some time ago there were rumors that Apple postponed the launch of production of the iPad Pro with 5G support to the beginning of 2021 due to delays caused by the coronavirus. DigiTimes reports that against the background of this news, Apple suppliers expect an increase in demand for 5G mmWave antennas. Note that the first iPads with support for fifth-generation networks will use the same Qualcomm 5G modems as the new iPhone 12.

But at the same time, the publication separately notes that Apple continues to develop its own 5G modem, which is designed to replace the Qualcomm solution used in the iPhone 12. In addition to the iPhone 13, which will be released in the fall of next year, it is reported that the proprietary modem will be used in future models of the iPad Pro, which should also be announced in the fall of 2021 after the new iPhone generation.

DigiTimes is known for reliable sources in the supply chain, so there is every reason to believe that the forecast will be confirmed. Recall that last summer, Apple acquired most of Intel's business for the production of modems for smartphones, so it has a strong Foundation for its development.
