This is the big question that occupies the minds of the employees of the apple brand right now: ” But how on earth are we going to offer 5G to iPhone users? ” The business is such that the Cupertino company, which no longer wanted support fromIntel or from Qualcomm some time ago even considered building their own modems with a small team of engineers. Suffice to say that to meet the deadlines of 5G, which will point the tip of its nose by 2020, it may be complicated.

But maybeApple will find unexpected help. After the implication of the president of Qualcomm who indicated “They have our number” with Apple in subtext, it is the giant Huawei, Apple’s main competitor in the world of smartphones, which offers its help in the supply 5G modems.

According to Engadget, Huawei would indeed be ready to offer its 5G Balong 5000 chip to Apple so that it can use it in its iPhone. Huawei would be ready to sell its chips exclusively to Apple: not to Samsung, for example, which already has its own. Will Apple therefore accept Huawei’s proposal? Nothing is less certain, as the image given could be a sign of weakness.
