Apple has reportedly conveyed a message to Intel, saying it will not be using the chip-maker’s 5G modems for 2020 iPhone models, the media reported.

As a result of the decision, Intel seems to have halted development on a modem internally known as “Sunny Peak”, but the company is reportedly now focusing on improving its product in an attempt to win Apple back for the 2022 iPhone lineup, Digital Trends reported on Thursday.

The news was originally reported by Calcalist, an Israeli financial daily, which reviewed internal company communications.

Earlier reports suggested that Apple was turning to Taiwanese mobile chipset maker MediaTek for its communications components and that the Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant was looking to move away from using Intel processors altogether by 2020.

Apple started using Intel components in modern iPhones as it wanted to reduce its dependence on chips from Qualcomm, with which it got entangled in a log legal battle. (IANS)

Apple has acquired Italian Application Programming Interface (API) integration developer – Stamplay – for $5.678 million, the media reported.

Stamplay describes itself as a “low code work-flow automation platform, empowering organisations to streamline manual work by integrating data and business applications used every day”.

However, the reasons for the iPhone-maker purchasing the Rome-based start-up remains unclear, VentureBeat reported on Thursday.

“However, it’s noteworthy that this start-up has experience in the financial payments industry, a sector that Apple entered with Apple Pay, and is expected to expand upon with a self-branded credit card next week,” the report said.

In 2016, the start-up won Visa’s Everywhere Initiative API contest and was entrusted with an unspecified development project for the payments giant.
