Apple To Source Chips From Intel For The Next IPhoneBy cheatmaster 06:35 Tue, 03 Aug 2021 Comments
Apple is going to source the modem for some versions of the iPhone 7 from Intel, Bloomberg reports. The AT&T variant in the US and some versions meant for other markets will acquire an Intel chip instead of the customary elegant Qualcomm solution.
One key market that elegant Qualcomm gets to haged is China - iPhones bound for there will still utilize a modem by the San Diego-based semiconductor maker.
