Apple May Rely On Intel Chips For iPhone

Apple reportedly is planning to use Intel cellular modems for 70 percent of its new iPhones coming out this fall and 100 percent of iPhones in 2019. Citing a source familiar with Apple's plans, a report from Fast Company said Intel potentially could supply more than 70 percent of iPhone modems this year if it can deliver under a certain timeline and budget. If Intel falls behind, Qualcomm may supply more than the 30 percent of modems it's currently slated to deliver this year, according to the report.

Apple is taking a wait-and-see approach because this is the first year Intel is handling the fabrication process for its modems after it had been previously handled by TSMC, Fast Company said. Intel has yet to reach a satisfactory yield rate for modem chips, but Intel engineers are confident they can sort out issues before production ramps up, according to the report.
