Apple and Qualcomm Strike a Deal

Apple and Qualcomm have settled their legal cases and have signed a multiyear contract. Shortly after this, Intel declared that it was exiting the mobile 5G modem business. This means we should be seeing all Qualcomm modems in future iPhones. We should be seeing unthrottled Qualcomm modems with performance that's on par with other Android flagships. I doubt we'll see a 5G iPhone this year but we should see some new iPhones with much better LTE performance. What are your thoughts?

There could still be some Intel based phones still in the development pipeline or product adjustments may be needed. The lowest common denominator approach really only works well when the competing products are very close in capabilities. That distance was increasing, however Intel's presence many have sparked Qualcomm to better performance (along with more Asian competitors).
