Anonymous, 12 Sep 2023Meanwhile Samsung and Huawei developing 6G?Well, Huawei is mostly stealing 6G patents, much like they do with 4G and 5G.
Remember when I said Intel was laughing all the way to the bank when they sold their mobile radio division to Apple, because it was a dead end hobbled by Qualcomm's patent abuse?
Meanwhile Samsung and Huawei developing 6G?
I Just Read, 11 Sep 2023Report: Apple's facing legal problems with in-house 5G modem GSMArena report 06/30/2022 ... moreSo, only two measly patents are preventing Apple from producing their own custom 5G modem. Thank you for the information.

Report: Apple's facing legal problems with in-house 5G modem GSMArena report 06/30/2022
Analyst Kuo reasoning maybe wrong according to the source of the above article whose expertise is patents.
Below is the relevant paragraph of the GSMArena article.
"Here’s the kicker - if Apple moves to switch to its in-house modem, Qualcomm will sue it over the patents in question. The two patents expire in 2029 and 2030, respectively, and Apple’s attempt to cancel them were put to an end this Monday when the Supreme Court decided not to hear Apple’s bid to revive the patent challenge."
It appears that there will be TWO 3 year contracts
24 to 26 and 27 to 29
This covers 5G.
6G is scheduled for 2030 which is what Apple are already working towards
