Here’s Why Apple’s Next iPhone Could Be A Huge Deal for Intel

Слайд 1

When smartphones and tablets started taking off, Intel famously missed out.

Слайд 2

The chipmaker was outpaced by Qualcomm’s superior mobile processors, and has never fully caught up.

But Intel’s mobile prospects may be about to change. The company is reportedly working to bring its LTE XMM 7360 chip to the next iPhone.

According to VentureBeat, Intel has about 1,000 employees working on getting Apple’s business. Source: VentureBeat.

Слайд 6

That would be a huge deal for Intel, considering Apple relies exclusively on Qualcomm for its LTE modems right now.

Слайд 7

It’s likely Intel wouldn’t win an exclusive contract to supply the iPhone modems, but even supplying some of them would be a major accomplishment.

Слайд 8

But Intel’s also competing to become a fabricator of Apple’s next system on a chip (or, SoC).

Слайд 9

This means that Apple would design the SoC, but then hire Intel to build it at one of its fabrication plants.

Слайд 10

It’s still not clear whether or not Intel will get its LTE modem into the next iPhone.

Слайд 11

But if it does, Intel could boost its mobile revenue by $1.25 billion, or higher if it wins Apple’s SoC fabrication business. Source: Barron’s.

Слайд 12

Either way, gaining any of Apple’s business would make Intel a serious competitor in the mobile space for the first time.
