Apple turns to TSMC for in-house 5G iPhone modem

For years now, we've seen Apple attempt to move away from Qualcomm by producing its own computing components in-house. However, one component that still ties Apple to Qualcomm is a big one in the mobile world: modems.

Qualcomm doesn't seem to be fazed, and it isn't even rushing to rival the Apple Silicon, at least not until 2023.
