"Any deal between Apple and Intel would likely include Intel patents and products, said one person briefed on the discussions". "It took Huawei and Samsung eight to 10 years to create competitive smartphone modems, but I believe if Apple acquired Intel's smartphone modem assets, it could shave a few years off that time". The final acquisition agreement is similar to Apple's acquisition of Dialog Semiconductor.
A deal between the two companies would also likely include Intel patents and products, according to the report, which says the arrangement would resemble the deal Apple reached with Dialog Semiconductor previous year, which saw Cupertino snaffle up patents and 300 engineers from the Anglo-German company.

Back in mid-April this year, Apple and Qualcomm entered a 5G partnership that will allow future iPhone models to use Qualcomm's 5G modems. To Apple's distress, Intel's plan regarding their 5G modems went to drain, and Apple had to look for another chipmaker for their 5G modem. As such, Apple already has a level of familiarity with Intel's modem operations. Because that's where the most important asset of Intel's modem business is. The iPhones continued to use Infineon modems until Apple switched to Qualcomm in 2011.
TechRadar Pro has contacted Apple and Intel for comment. Apple has shown interest in Intel's subsidiary.
The iPhone maker is seeking to develop its own modem in order to reduce its reliance on external suppliers such as Qualcomm. The acquisition of Intel's smartphone modem business could help boost Apple's modem development efforts. As per The Information, Apple has told new hires in its modem chip division that it won't launch devices with its own modem chips until 2025.
