Intel is getting out of the 5G smartphone modem business, meaning that we won’t get 5G Intel iPhones after all. The news was announced by Intel hours after Apple and 5G pioneer Qualcomm revealed that they have resolved their multi-year legal battle. in a statement. Fast Company claimed that Intel had struggled with its 5G modem. The chip Intel was working on is called the XMM 8160 5G modem. However, it was claimed that Intel had continually missed deadlines along the way. As a result, the publication suggested that, “Apple has lost confidence in Intel to deliver the chip, our source says.” Intel was quick to counter this report. In a statement that was issued to Cult of Mac and other outlets, an Intel representative said that: “Intel plans to support customer device launches in 2020 with its XMM 8160 5G multimode modem.” For whatever reason, it seems like plans changed. Still, so long as we get the eagerly anticipated 5G iPhone by 2020, we’ll be happy!
