Tech giant Apple, along with Google, was reported to have joined the Next-generation Alliance in November last year, a group that looks to advance the next generation of wireless technology (6G). Apparently, Apple is also planning to start working on 6G on its own.
According to the reports, Cupertino-based Company is sourcing engineers and talent that will help in the development of next-generation 6G cellular technologies.
6G technology is still several years away from reality, considering that 5G has not even been fully deployed worldwide. But then, US firms seem to have been caught off guard by their Chinese counterparts who led the way in 5G deployment and so, are trying to avoid a repeat.
The job posting explains that the tech giant is looking for people who will “research and design next-generation (6G) wireless communication systems for radio access networks” and “participate in industry/academic forums passionate about 6G technology.”
It states further that the candidate will have the unique and rewarding opportunity to craft next-generation wireless technology that will have a deep impact on future Apple products. “In this role, you will be at the center of a cutting-edge research group responsible for creating next-generation disruptive radio access technologies over the next decade,” it states.
