According to the latest rumors, Intel has secured itself a big contract with Apple for the next-gen iPhone. DigiTimes reports that Intel will be supplying Apple with half of the modem chips required for the next-gen iPhone launching in September.




Intel will reportedly package the modems for the new iPhone, but have tapped TSMC and tester King Yuan Electronics (KYEC) to manufacture the chips. Right now, Qualcomm is the supplier of LTE modems chips for the iPhone, but Apple is wanting to shift having all of its eggs in one basket.


There's not much new with the next-gen iPhone, but a win is a win for Intel in the smartphone game. Now imagine if the iPhone was truly powered by a mobile processor from Intel... that would change, everything.
