Apple to use Intel 5G modem on future iPhones

Apple is rumored to be working with Intel to integrate 5G modems into its future iPhones. It is reported that Intel already has thousands of engineers working on its 5G chipset. However, seeing a 5G iPhone will definitely take time as Intel is expected to ship its modem later between 2019 and 2020. While Apple is known to be in talks with Qualcomm as well, it is reported that the talks are ‘limited’ as of now. Apple and Qualcomm are also tied in a legal feud over royalty fees.
