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

Intel 5G Modem

At least some of the team that was handling primary work on Sunny Peak, however, will be redirected to other 5G efforts to boost Intel's overall 5G program. Sunny Peak was a combined 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth device and the same documents claim Intel will attempt to rework Sunny Peak for inclusion with Apple's 2022 device family. While Apple wasn't to be the only customer for 5G modems, the company was, the leaks suggest, the "main volume driver" for the "Sunny Peak" component.

Apple was said to be facing "a massive effort" to launch 5G in its mobile devices, the Intel communications said, adding that the decision not to use Intel's modem was due to "many factors".

That dream looks like it's on hold now, though.

Dawn Sturgess: Novichok poison couple in Salisbury were 'turning lives around'
Ms Sturgess's mother Caroline visited her in the intensive care unit of the city's hospital and said she was "in a bad way". They are both now receiving treatment for suspected exposure to an unknown substance at Salisbury District Hospital.

Reportedly, Apple has notified Intel that it will no longer use its mobile modem for its next-gen iPhone. The report from CTech by Calcalist claims to have seen internal communications between the two companies and cites people familiar with the matter.

According to TF International Securities' well-sourced analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), Apple is considering five colors for its upcoming iPhone 9: gray, white, blue, red, and orange. These Intel Radio chips are internally codenamed "Sunny Peak" and Intel has halted the production for its chips. But it's likely that the 5G phone business will begin to pick up speed in the coming years: Strategy Analytics recently said it expects the first 5G commercial handsets to go on sale starting in early 2019, but the firm also said 5G handsets will only account for 5% of global handset sales by 2021.

This is all after word broke in April that Apple was moving away from Intel by developing its own chips to use in its Mac PCs, too, to be used in its products by 2020. 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. That's just really bad business.
