Apple’s announcement that it had reached a deal with Qualcomm was surprising enough, but this was soon followed by news Intel is shuttering its own 5G chip development. I have no inside track on the order of events, but it seems possible Intel decided to quit the business first, forcing Apple into the corner – or that development of alternative modems proved to be too challenging. The truth will out eventually.
