Samsung may end up supplying modems for 5G iPhones

To recap, Apple sourced its chips from Qualcomm from 2011 to 2016, and later on, it split some orders with Intel, before dropping Qualcomm completely. Starting in 2016, Apple split the business between Intel and Qualcomm, but in 2018, Apple moved exclusively to Intel for its newest phones.

Word on the street is that Apple isn't rushing to adopt 5G technology in its iPhone lineup this year, but it appears that the company at least considered it. Those networks are expected to start rolling out this year and provide faster data speeds than current 4G networks.

The Federal Trade Commission brought an antitrust suit against chip-maker Qualcomm in 2017, and it's just now playing out in court.

This, Mollenkopf claimed at the federal courthouse in San Jose, wasn't an anti-competitive measure, but a way of ensuring Qualcomm could recoup the costs of the initial payment to Apple. Consumers could actually benefit from lower smartphone prices should the chip maker be forced to stop demanding licensing fees before selling chips to phone manufacturers. Back then, Apple was a new name in the industry and Jobs needed the chips But what a difference 12 years makes. However, its business relationship with Qualcomm changed "in a very profound and negative manner" after the lawsuit was filed in 2017.

"The entire concept of Project Antique was to find a second supplier".

These details emerged when Apple supply chain executive Tony Blevins testified in front of the court as part of the trial between the FTC and Qualcomm.

"They made it very unattractive for us to use another chip supplier", Blevins said, according to Reuters. Ot did not want to rely too much on a single supplier.

Blevins said that talking with Samsung, whose Galaxy and Note devices compete against the iPhone, is "not an ideal environment" for Apple, but that Samsung is now the largest component supplier to Apple. Citing sources, Bloomberg previously reported that Apple would not release such a phone until 2020.
