It was earlier reported that Apple might miss its rumoured 2020 deadline to launch a 5G iPhone. However, several reports also claimed that the company was having issues sourcing their 5G modems due to their ongoing litigation with Qualcomm, in which the latter company supplies the majority of the chipsets in upcoming 5G smartphones.
Now, the good news is that it looks like Apple could still make their 2020 timeline after all. This is because according to a new report, it was revealed that Apple and Qualcomm have finally squashed their beef with each other and have reached a settlement agreement. As such, Apple will reportedly get their 5G tech from Qualcomm and that their 5G iPhone will most probably arrive in 2020 as previously reported.
Previously it had been reported that Apple could be sourcing from Intel or Samsung. Huawei had even expressed their openness to sell their tech to Apple, although it seems like Apple did not take them up on their offer. This sounds like good news but for Apple users, waiting an additional year may not sit well with them but until then, we will keep our eyes peeled for more information.
