New iPhone will get slow Intel modems instead of faster Qualcomm

Apple will completely switch to Intel’s modems in the new iPhone – this is reported by foreign resources. Earlier the company used Qualcomm components, including, but now they will refuse from them. Such a decision can negatively affect the speed of loading iPhone data.

Qualcomm’s chief financial officer George Davis said that Apple “will use our competitor’s modems in the next iPhone.” The name of the competing company, he did not say, but it’s obvious that it’s about Intel.

In previous years, Apple used the modems of both manufacturers in the iPhone. The tests showed that in the same network Qualcomm modems showed a higher speed. The company even accused Apple that it artificially slows down modems so that there are no noticeable differences from the copies with Intel solutions.

Apple will introduce the new iPhone in early autumn. It is expected two models with OLED-screens of 5.8 and 6.5 inches, as well as a version with an LCD-display of 6.1 inches. According to the latest rumors, they will all be frameless, with a “monobrow” and Face ID recognition system.
