Apple is hiring engineers to work on developing 6G mobile networking technology. The information is based on the list of vacancies published by the company and released by Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who is already known for the accuracy of information about Apple products.
The published vacancies are for positions in Apple’s offices in Silicon Valley and San Diego, places where the brand develops wireless technologies and chip design.
“You will have the unique and rewarding opportunity to create 6G wireless technology, which will have a profound impact on future Apple products,” says the job posting. “In this role, you will be at the center of a cutting-edge research group responsible for creating disruptive technologies for the next generation of mobile networks. You will work on defining system-level concepts, proposing and researching innovative ideas and algorithms, performing complex simulations system, defining fast prototyping platforms to prove your ideas and specifying next generation RAN protocols and cellular systems (6G) ”.
The 6G is due to be launched around 2030, but everything indicates that the giant is eager to start developing the technology. In November last year, Apple joined the Next G Alliance, an industry group created by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) that seeks to advance the leadership of North American mobile technology in 6G. Among the members of the initiative are companies like Google, Intel, Charter, Cisco and LG. Some analysts say the technology can allow speeds 100 times faster than 5G.
