Apple and Qualcomm recently settled their 2-year long legal dispute and hours after, Intel announced it is dropping out of the 5G smartphone modem business. There were speculations as to which event influenced the other and now, the Intel CEO Bob Swan has confirmed that the company indeed bowed out of the 5G smartphone modem business because of the Apple-Qualcomm settlement, which meant that Apple will once again employ Qualcomm modems in its devices. Apple seems to have estimated that Intel won’t be able to deliver on modems for the iPhone on time and decided to prioritise the development of its iPhones and end the years-long dispute with Qualcomm.
