Apple said to be using Intel modems in some new iPhones

US chip giant Intel seems to have scored a major win over rival Qualcomm in the smartphone modem market, according to a report from Bloomberg. Apparently Apple will use Intel modem chips for iPhones that will use the AT&T network in the US as well as some other unidentified overseas markets. This will mark the most significant mobile win for Intel since it acquired modem-maker Infineon back in 2011, but shouldn’t be confused with the mobile CPU market, which Intel has pretty much given up on.
