This Analyst Confirms Apple To Use Qualcomm Chips In Next Gen iPhones And More

  • TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that Apple Inc AAPL will retain Qualcomm Inc's QCOM chips in next-generation iPhones after Apple possibly faced issues with its chips. 
  • Her latest survey indicates that Apple's iPhone 5G modem chip development may have failed.

  • She expected Qualcomm's revenue and EPS in 2H23-1H24 to beat market consensus due to its sole supplier position for 5G chips of 2H23 new iPhones as Qualcomm remains irreplaceable. 
  • She believes Apple will continue to develop its own 5G chips. 
  • However, by the time Apple replaces Qualcomm, Qualcomm's other new businesses should have grown enough to significantly offset the negative impacts caused by the order loss of iPhone 5G chips.
  • The Supreme Court recently overruled Apple's bid to revive its patent dispute with Qualcomm.
  • Price Action: QCOM shares traded higher by 3.55% at $131.69 on the last check Tuesday.
