Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to launch some time in September, we have been hearing a number of rumors about the two handsets and now we have more details.
According to a recent report the AT&T version of the iPhone 7 will use an Intel modem and the Verizon and China models of the handset will use a Qualcomm modem.
The news comes in a report from Bloomberg who have received details about Apple using Intel modems in the AT&T version of the handset.
Orders from Apple represent the first major win for an Intel mobile chip program that had struggled for relevance and racked up operating losses. The shot in the arm for the world’s largest chipmaker further dents the dominance of Qualcomm in baseband processors that connect phones to networks and convert radio signals into voice and data. While Qualcomm is losing some orders, it’s retaining a major chunk of Apple’s business, offsetting concern that one of its largest customers would drop it completely.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are expected to have a similar design to the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, the handsets are said to get a number of hardware upgrades . This will include the new Apple A10 processor and also more RAM and we are also expecting updated cameras and of course a new version of Apple’s mobile OS, iOS 10.
Apple are expected to unveil their iOS 10 OS at their Worldwide Developer Conference which kicks off later today.
