Apple has been trying to replace Qualcomm and Intel modems recently, but this latest faced problems with implementing the 5G.
In a press release, Intel said it will not launch a 5G modem for smartphones although it planned to do so in 2020.
There has been speculation that the company has not reached deadlines and even Apple has lost confidence in Intel.
Intel CEO said they were excited about the 5G but not the smartphones since there was no reliable route that could bring profit to the company.
In November last year it was said that Intel was accelerating the development of 5G modems and even giving a clear plan to CES in Jana.
