Apple Reportedly Dumps Intel's Upcoming 5G Modem for 2020 iPhone

Intel puts new 5G modem on hold after Apple snub Apple dropping Intel as radio chip supplier, killing off the product – report

Apple was thought to be the "key mobile customer" this chip was relying on for sales, meaning Intel wanted it in iPhones and iPads. The iPhone maker has reportedly notified Intel about development. It is also said that the fresh decision has pushed the Santa Clara, California-headquartered company to halt the development of its chip that will combine a 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth chip under one build and redirected its engineers to other operations. According to Calcalis, Apple has informed the chip firm that the 2020 iPhone won't be using Intel 5G modems.

In a statement given to INQ, an Intel spokesperson said: "Intel's 5G customer engagements and roadmap have not changed for 2018 through 2020".

Apple and Qualcomm might be entangled in lawsuits and jeopardizing their relations, but the Cupertino company is reportedly looking to drop Intel as a chip manufacturer as well.

In November it was thought that Intel had a good chance of being Apple's 5G modem supplier due to their ongoing fight with Qualcomm.

A separate report from Israeli publication CTech suggests that Apple is - for now - ending its plan to work with Intel on 5G modems. "We remain committed to our 5G plans and projects". At the same time, though, heavyweight Qualcomm has been crowing of its growing 5G traction-Qualcomm in February said more than a dozen handset makers around the world have selected its Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem to power their forthcoming 5G phones, an announcement the company argued gives it a 12- to 18-month lead on its competitors in the 5G arena. But Apple probably isn't going to have an iPhone ready for 5G until much later, with 2020 being our best bet for a 5G iPhone.

Kuo also expects that the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Plus - or whatever Apple calls the larger sequel to the iPhone X - will come in three colors: black, white, and gold. We will have to wait and see what solution Apple comes up with if they decide to ditch Intel.
