Apple Reportedly Snubs Intel 5G Modems For 2020 iPhone Family

Intel denies its halting production of 5G modems following Apple snub

Despite winning the majority of orders for Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup, the Cupertino company has informed Intel that it will not be using its 5G modem in its 2020 iPhone lineup.

CHIPMAKER Intel has denied that it's halted production of its 5G modems after being snubbed by Apple.

One of the biggest losers of the mobile business that Apple shaped for the past 10 years - you know, aside from all the smartphone makers the iPhone destroyed - is Intel.

The executives believe Apple's decision not to use Intel chips was the result of "many factors", including its interest in even faster connectivity options. Hardware manufacturers need to prepare, though, and decide which 5G chips will make it into their products.

A separate report from Israeli publication CTech suggests that Apple is - for now - ending its plan to work with Intel on 5G modems. Perhaps Apple wants to wait until this is more mature. According to the report, Intel is regrouping and hopes to be back in Apple's good graces with regards to 5G modems in 2022. That is when Apple will most likely launch a 5G iPhone that will also support the new Wi-Fi standard called WiGig (802.11ad). Interestingly, the new move emerges after it was reported that Apple is considering Chinese chipmaker MediaTek as the second supplier for iPhone modems amid disputes with Qualcomm. If Apple were to make its own chip, it wouldn't need to buy chips from Qualcomm, as it now does for the majority of iPhones, but may still need to pay licensing fees depending on the result of the legal battle. "We remain committed to our 5G plans and projects", the company said in a statement.

Intel has only been supplying its modem to Apple so far so it is understandable that the company is adjusting its future product roadmap accordingly.

An in-house 5G chip, created with Apple's own technology, could possibly help Apple with its feud with Qualcomm, in which Apple is suing Qualcomm over what Apple claims is exorbitant royalty fees.
