The company thinks MediaTek talks about 5G modems, but only as a security plan if Intel is short.
Apple refused to comment Quick company.
This may be disappointing if you are hoping that Apple will drive as much as 5G bandwidth as soon as possible. However, it is relatively consistent with the company's strategy. Although Apple generally maintains mobile technology, it rarely lived in the forefront of high-speed upgrades, via 3G, to the first iPhone, and waited until the iPhone 5 jumped into LTE. It typically stops the technology becoming mature. Keep in mind that early LTE phones such as HTC Thunderbolt have often been very thick and still have a terrible battery life? Apple may not want to run as an early user, especially if the 5G networks only cover modestly in 2019.
