Malcolm Owen on Apple kicking Intel to the curb. Again.
Apple has reportedly notified Intel of its decision to not use its modem in a next-generation iPhone model… Intel had been working on a chipset called “Sunny Peak,” combining a 5G modem with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios, which Intel was producing with Apple in mind. Company executives were apparently anticipating Apple would be the “main volume driver” for the part, but following Apple’s notification, Intel has redirected the team’s focus to other 5G-related projects.
Will Apple go it alone again?
