They signed 6 year patent licensing and chip supply agreement.
What are your thoughts?
How would it impact wireless industry in general? Would apple ramp down or drop its own 5g modem development. Can apple end up buying qcom someday? Who will buy intel modems now.

    Intel modem is total trash, Apple now using qcom plus internal design.

    Apple might still use multi vendor strategy to keep the prices in check

    • Intel wishes haha. Apple holds grudges, so they'll probably still build their own modem to dump Qualcomm in 2-3 years. Their new San Diego location was setup primarily to poach Qualcomm engineers to work on the Apple modem. Apple realized that making modems is tougher than CPUs, so they had to buy more time with the settlement.
