Now the partnership has decided to resume, but not in the framework of the release of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Not every next-generation smartphone will receive the modem Intel – they will be equipped with only a portion of the modifications supplied for certain markets in Asia and Latin America.
