In the latest turn on the rollercoaster of Apple-Qualcomm relations, the chipmaker's financial chief, George Davis, has confirmed that Apple will exclusively use its competitor's modems on its upcoming handsets.
"We expect Apple to report an in-line June quarter and provide a slightly weaker than consensus September quarter outlook due to a possible October launch of the 6.1" LCD iPhone", Huberty wrote.
"We believe Apple intends to exclusively use our competitors' modems rather than our modems in its next iPhone release". The statement came from the company's earnings call, as reported by CNBC.
Other gossip from the Apple rumour mill suggests the tech giant will release a new version of the iPhone SE.

The executions early Thursday followed the hanging of the leader of the Aum Shinrikyo cult and six of his followers on July 5. But Kamikawa said it was "not appropriate under the current circumstances to abolish the death penalty".
Qualcomm has previously said it wasn't including any revenue from Apple in forecasts, so Wednesday's comments confirm an existing concern among analysts and investors. Intel and Qualcomm now produce modems for the 2017 iPhone versions, and Intel's are decidedly slower.
Of course, it's hard to stand out from the crowd with your gorgeous new iPhone if the finish on the device is white or black. And Intel's share of the iPhone modem business increased year by year as Apple's legal battle with Qualcomm heated up. Pricing for the OLED models will be expectedly high, considering that the iPhone X is now priced at around Rs 90,000 in India. If this looked anything like Apple's (PRODUCT) RED versions then it would undeniably be visually stunning. As a company, Apple will be hoping to have a lot more success with this year's LCD model.
