Israeli website CTech by Calcalist reported it reviewed internal communications from Intel and spoke to "people familiar with the matter" and found Intel would not supply 5G modems for Apple's 2020 phones. According to the report, Intel is regrouping and hopes to be back in Apple's good graces with regards to 5G modems in 2022.
According to TF International Securities' well-sourced analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), Apple is considering five colors for its upcoming iPhone 9: gray, white, blue, red, and orange. It is also said that the fresh decision has pushed the Santa Clara, California-headquartered company to halt the development of its chip that will combine a 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth chip under one build and redirected its engineers to other operations.
Apple was said to be facing "a massive effort" to launch 5G in its mobile devices, the Intel communications said, adding that the decision not to use Intel's modem was due to "many factors".
Update: An Intel spokesperson has denied CTech's report, reaching out to SiliconANGLE and other publications with a statement saying "Intel's 5G customer engagements and roadmap have not changed for 2018 through 2020". It looked like Apple wanted to source iPhone 5G chips from anyone but Qualcomm, and since Intel provides a portion of the LTE chips in the last two iPhone versions, the giant chipmaker seemed like the obvious choice.

Who will make the 5G modem inside the iPhone?
Shrout stated in his report that "Upholding Qualcomm's request to prevent Apple from importing iPhones that use Intel modem technology could imperil next-gen technology".
Although 5G chips in smartphones will be available in 2019, network adaptation is a bit slower, so large-scale rollout of gigabit speeds is expected in 2020. "Intel expected Apple to be the "main volume driver" for the product, they said".
