When Apple inescapably releases a 5G iPhone in the next couple years, Intel will reportedly have no part in the powering section, it’s much-faster wireless data speeds.
According to the Czech by Calcalist the popular Israeli website, Apple has canceled to all orders for the new technologies connection 5G modem, Intel was developing for future 5G-enabled iPhones that release in 2020.
Internal Intel document it acquired, also the website report that development of the 5G chipset that codename “Sunny Peak,” and the company’s all product developers have been shifted to the other categories projects.
Sunny Peak was a chip that would have to support 5G, LTE. Wi-Fi, and also Bluetooth. In 2009 Apple’s announce the decisions to drop Sunny Peak chipset for many factors, one of the particular cause was the introduction of the new standard for the 802.11ad Wi-Fi protocol.
The unusual Intel executive said in the internal document, “The new speedy WiFi standard WiGig (802.11ad) into a mobile product that brings a new unexpected challenge.”
Sincerely, Intel’s 5G chips dropping in the mobile space its hurt to the chipmakers. Currently, the company supplies the baseband modem for some of the iPhone models- GSM models (AT &T-Mobile). The other side Qualcomm supplies wireless modems for iPhones with rear CDMA radios.
Apple and Qualcomm fighting over the patent disputes and rumors Apple might discard its chips altogether, nowadays Intel was apparently in a good position to scoop up more iPhone business by becoming the single provider of modem chips for the future generation iPhone models.
The golden dream looks like it’s holding now at least for the iPhone 5G devices. The year of 2020 most of the tech analysts expect a 5G iPhone but Intel does not have any modem go through any iPhone models.
Apple continuously developing its own modem system because of that exploring the possibility and compete to using wireless chips for the Media Tek brand. Apple with Wi-Fi chips for the future of HomePods and also very close to dislocating Intel as the secondary modem supplier for future iPhones.
In June Media Tek exposed its first 5G modem that called Helio M70. The 5G chip is capable to transfer data up to 5Gbps speed, approximately Intel’s own 5G modems hypertechnical peck data transfer over 5Gbps.
While if Media Tek’s 5G chips aren’t as fast compare to Intel chip, still the speeds would be the increase from the average of 450Mbps that currently available in Qualcomm and Intel-equipped iPhones.
The iPhone business loss won’t be the only thing that really hurt for Intel in 2020. In the same year, Apple is also continuously planning to dump Intel’s x86 chips in a favor of its own custom designed build processors at least for some of the Mac.
Moreover, if Apple makes good and both of plans then Intel chip totally down in the current market. The world’s most valuable tech company it wants to do then there is no competitor over there, this company sell millions of Macs and also hundreds of millions of iPhones.
