Intel’s 5G modem business is all the rage with Apple striking a $1 billion deal…

5G speed

Apple interested in purchasing Intel’s abandoned 5G modem project!

  • Apple is going to make the big purchase of Intel’s abandoned project of the smartphone modem for $1 billion.

  • Despite being in a legal war, Apple has reconciled to working together on the 5G speed modem with Qualcomm as their plans matched those of the release of the 5G iPhones.

  • Even though Apple struck a deal with Qualcomm, its working on its own modem project to achieve independence from 3rd party producers in the future, hence the Intel purchase.

Word is in the air that Apple is just about to close the deal on buying Intel’s (another technology company) smartphone modem which has been abandoned by Intel itself for a while now, for 1 billion dollars! Its being circulated that this deal could be finalized and announced in next week at the latest.

As we all are already aware of the newness of the 5G speed in the technological realm, Intel was one technology company that jumped off the wagon of the 5G mobile modem business at the start of this year. The reason behind this being that Apple came up with a surprise deal with Qualcomm which means that Apple will undoubtedly be using Qualcomm modems in its phones. It has been confirmed that Qualcomm 5G modem is making its return in the Apple family. The CEO of Intel, Robert H. Swan, has specified that Intel has made its return from the modem business due to the Apple-Qualcomm deal. If Intel couldn’t get Apple as its customer for the modems, the technology company couldn’t possibly benefit from the project.

As per a Bloomberg report, it was Apple who decided to withdraw from Intel as their production time of 5G speed modems clashed with what they had planned for their 5G ready smartphones. The same 5G speed modem is now being produced by Qualcomm; hence the collaboration between Qualcomm and Apple despite them having legal disputes over the years.

As Intel couldn’t benefit from its abandoned project, and as Apple is still in business for 5G speed modems, they’re now working on a billion dollar deal with the latter technology company which would hand over Intel’s modem business to Apple complete with its portfolio of patents as well as its staff.

Intel, however, did try to keep its modem business afloat but the Qualcomm 5G modem just won the race of time, making Intel look into the market for other potential buyers. It turns out that Apple was probably Intel’s best bet as the technology company has already been providing modems for Apple’s 2018 iPhone models. Also Apple had also been the only customer for Intel’s modem over the years as all Android smartphones rely on Qualcomm modems or a similar in-house version of the modems.

Apple most definitely has a deal with Qualcomm for modems, but it doesn’t mean that it hasn’t thought to venture in the same to inevitably become independent of any third-party 5G speed modem providers. It is being said that the technology company is developing its very own modem solutions that is not much different to the current internal CPU platform that gave birth to the exclusive A-series chipsets used in the iPhones and the iPads. This means they can most definitely benefit from the incomplete 5G speed modem Intel project by combining it to their own project which will add the experience and the existing work done by Intel. The future will inevitably see Apple being the sole producer of its own modems, should it all work out according to plan.
