    Apple has posted multiple job listings indicating that it is hiring engineers to work on 6G technology internally so it does not have to rely on partners like Qualcomm as the next generation of wireless technology hits several years down the line.

    The job listings, which were first spotted and reported by Bloomberg, include titles like "Wireless Research Systems Engineer – 5G/6G" and "RAN1/RAN4 Standards Engineer."

    The listings have statements like "You will be part of a team defining and doing research of next-generation standards like 6G," "You will research and design next-generation (6G) wireless communication systems for radio access networks with emphasis on the PHY/MAC/L2/L3 layers," "Participate in industry/academic forums passionate about 6G technology," and "Contribute to future 3GPP RAN work items on 6G technology."
