Apple is looking for another partner that can deliver the company’s cellular modules for the iPhone. Probably, it will be the Chinese company MediaTek. This was reported by DigiTimes.
According to recent reports, Apple is looking for another partner producing cellular modules for smartphones to give him some orders. Probably, corporations need a new supplier of modems for the trial with her current partner – firm Qualcomm. At least? for this reason Apple sent orders for the production of cell modules from Intel last year.
Source DigiTimes reported that the performance of the iPhone already gave 50% of orders Intel. This decision was taken in order to protect themselves in the event, if due to a conflict with Qualcomm, Apple will lose one of the suppliers of cell modules.
Cooperation Apple and MediaTek will be useful for both companies. A Chinese manufacturer of processors and other components for smartphones for a long time creates products for Android devices and has great experience in this field. While MediaTek can get a large, permanent customer in the face of Apple.
The trial between Apple and Qualcomm started because of the violation of patents owned by the latter.
