LMAOOOOO! I would not be surprised, if intel modems aren’t in the 2020 iPhone. Apple is seeing the light...slowly lol. Bad modems, weak sales, falling stocks, boring OS...wake up Apple...wake up.

I hope this is true...I’m ready for a shakeup in the product line, or at least iOS.

All the haters are have fodder now. Haters will behave as if Apple working with Samsung and other companies is something new. Samsung and Apple settled their differences out of court long time back. Samsung and Apple working together is an amazing combination. Their modems are definitely better than Intels.

Apple should go with mediatek. They have battery draining soc but their modems are good. It will help apple lower the price of their products.

This is about cost saving more than anything, and Apple know they can get a better deal.
