Apple iPhone 16 to use Wireless chips: Apple is currently working on designing its own cellular chip that is expected to be available in late 2024 or early 2025. But according to a new report, it seems Apple is also working on its own wireless chip that will be responsible for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections in future iPhones.

According to the report, the iPhone 16 could be the first Apple iPhone to feature cellular chips and wireless chips made by Apple. For context, the Cupertino giant is currently using Qualcomm’s cellular chips and Broadcom’s wireless chips.
Confirming the new report, a tipster familiar with the update claims that the wireless chips made by Apple will launch with Apple iPhones in 2025 – i.e. the iPhone 16. The tipster also said that Apple might combine its cellular chip with the wireless chip. This would allow Apple to save on production costs, improve power efficiency, and take up less space.
So far, Apple is making its own chipset for the Apple iPhones – the A Bionic chipset. Making its own cellular and wireless chips is another way the company plans to reduce its reliance on third-party suppliers, taking most of the manufacturing in-house.
The company will however still rely on Samsung to supply its display and rely on some other companies to supply other parts of the iPhones in 2025.
