For Your Verge, the bargain”leaves Plenty of feel” for Apple.

“Ahead of Apple and Qualcomm settling, Intel became the only third-party modem supplier for its 2018 versions of this iPhone. And Apple has been Intel’s sole significant client for modems — almost every other key Android telephone depends on both Qualcomm or in-house options,” it states.
