Apple's 5G iPhone will likely launch in 2021

The iPhone XS Max

Intel was supposed to be the only provider of 5G wireless modems in the iPhone expected to debut in 2020.

Just like previous rumours and analysts notes have indicated, a UBS analyst says there is an increasing likelihood that Apple won't have a 5G iPhone ready for 2020.

Apple is now running behind on the 5G game.

Intel, however, won't release a 5G modem until late 2020, which means there's a high chance that Apple won't be able to upgrade the iPhone with 5G capabilities next year. And with Intel already introducing three different managers for the project, things are going to be tricky.

Mrs May is expected to tell her Cabinet to abstain in this votes to avoid showing a deep division within the Government. Northern Ireland's DUP - which has propped up Mrs May's minority government - also continues to oppose the deal.

Intel, which was to be Apple's sole supplier of 5G modems for its 2020 iPhones given the firm's ongoing beef with Qualcomm, needs to deliver sample parts to Apple by early summer of this year before delivering a finished modem design in early 2020. The report suggested that Apple's modem partner Intel wasn't delivering what Apple needed so the company was looking to take the reins and phase Intel out. The company says it is still committed to shipping its 5G modem in 2020, however.

Apple is now involved in an unresolved legal dispute with the mobile industry's main modem manufacturer, Qualcomm.

Apple has reportedly tried to secure 5G modems from Samsung and MediaTek, but neither firm is likely to have chips ready in time for next year's iPhone launch date. It is being assumed that Samsung is not providing 5G modems to Apple because it wants to use it for the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.

Now, according to a new report from Fast Company, Apple has significantly ramped up its efforts when it comes to creating its own smartphone modems. If this is true, it would be bad news for Intel, which now makes iPhone modems. It has reportedly hired up to 2000 engineers, including engineers from both Intel and Qualcomm, to work on its own modems.
