Teardown Confirms Qualcomm Modems in the iPhone 13 Pro

From PC Mag: It's always good to confirm what you suspected all along. In this case, iFixit's teardown of the iPhone 13 Pro shows that the iPhone 13 line has Qualcomm's X60 modem, the same as in other flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 series.

This is not weird. This is what we expected. But Apple always refuses to give details about its modems, so it's nice to have it confirmed.

The iFixit teardown has a lot of goodies in it. But we will focus here on the radio chips. They've identified inside:

- Qualcomm X60 modems and SDR868 5G RF transceiver

- Qualcomm and Qorvo envelope trackers

- Broadcom and Skyworks front-end modules

They don't mention it, but Apple makes its own antenna modules.
