iPhone 13 Lineup Expected to Use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X60 Modem With Several 5G Improvements
Based on a 5nm cycle, the X60 packs higher force effectiveness into a more modest impression contrasted with the 7nm-based Snapdragon X55 modem utilized in iPhone 12 models, which could add to longer battery life. With the X60 modem, iPhone 13 models would likewise have the option to total 5G information from both mmWave and sub-6GHz groups all the while to accomplish an ideal mix of high velocity and low-idleness network inclusion.
