RF front-end module industry
What are the technical choices made by Apple?

“In the iPhone series from 2016 to 2020, Apple’s strategy was to reduce the RF area size with a decrease of the board level at first until 2017.” asserts Stéphane Elisabeth, PhD, Cost Analyst in RF and Advanced Packaging at System Plus Consulting. “But since, the board is increasing along with a stabilization of the RF share mainly even with 5G integration. Between 2017 and 2020, Intel was the only modem and transceiver (RxTx) supplier for Apple. Qualcomm who lost the market in 2017, is getting in the iPhone design in 2020 and is likely to be kept in 2021 because of the 5G. In 2022, in-house modem and RxTx could be expected from Apple.”
