Qualcomm today revealed that its legal trouble with Apple will have a larger impact on its business later this year. Apple may not use Qualcomm's chips in future iPhones, representing a huge loss for Qualcomm. "We believe Apple intends to solely use our competitor's modems rather than our modems in its next iPhone release," said CFO George Davis during a conference call with analysts and press. "We will continue to provide modems for Apple legacy devices," meaning older iPhones that are still in production. Apple is one of Qualcomm's biggest customers, but the two have been tangled in a legal battle over royalties since last year. The last few iPhones have relied on a mix of Qualcomm and Intel modems. Intel's modems don't perform as well as Qualcomm's in some network environments, and yet Apple appears to have chosen Intel moving forward. Apple declined to comment on Qualcomm's revelation.
