Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon at Company’s Snapdragon Tech Summit this week has said that the main goal of Qualcomm’s renewed relationship with Apple right now is to get a 5G iPhone launched on time.

During the summit, Amon stated: “Priority number one of this relationship with Apple is how to launch their phone as fast as we can. That’s the priority,” PCMag reported recently.

“We have a multi-year agreement with Apple. It’s not one, it’s not two, it’s multi-year for our Snapdragon modem. We’re setting no expectations on front end, especially because we engaged it very late,” Amon added.

Earlier, Apple and Intel were working closely to bring a 5G iPhone. However, once the six-year deal between Qualcomm and Apple was made, Intel later moved away from the 5G mobile marketplace.
