Apple Looking to Deploy Modems from MediaTek, Intel in 2018 iPhone Models: Report

Tech News

Amid the ongoing battle with Qualcomm, Apple is now reportedly looking to partner with Taiwanese chip maker MediaTek for a portion of the baseband modems it will use on 2018 iPhone models. The latest development emerges days after the iPhone maker was said to explore a similar partnership deal with Intel. Presently, Qualcomm is a major entity for Apple to deploy advanced modems on its iPhone models. But it appears that the long-standing disputes between the two companies can give chances to MediaTek and Intel to serve their native solutions to iPhone users in the future.

Apple is switching 50 percent of its iPhone modem chipsets orders from Qualcomm to Intel, while MediaTek appears to also be a candidate to become an additional modem chip supplier for iPhone models in 2018, Taiwan’s DigiTimes reports, citing sources familiar with the development.
