Intel Seeking to Incorporate new Medfield Chips in Apple's iOS Devices
According to the folks over at The Telegraph, Intel recently unveiled new Medfield chips in the iPhone. According to Dave Whalen, vice president of Intel’s architecture group, Intel has spoken to Apple (amongst other manufacturers) about using the new Medfield chips in iOS devices. It was clarified by Whalen that it isn’t just the iOS platform the company is targeting.
Although it is a possibility, it doesn’t seem very likely for Apple to move to Intel chips in iOS devices, despite the company using Intel chips in Macs. Since the release of the iPhone 4, Apple continues to use its own line of processors with the help of Samsung of course. The iPhone 4 was given the A4 and the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S have been running on the A5 chip, created by Apple. As of right now, Apple’s iPad 3 is rumored to be running the quad-core A6 and going off what appears to be an apparent trend, the iPhone 5 will likely have the A6 chip as well.
As far as the Medfield chips go, what makes them unique is that it is a single core, unlike Intel’s previous chips. The Medfield uses the ARM chips’ strategy in pulling all processors into a single chip, which helps save battery life amongst many other things. For now, it seems Apple is likely to stick with its own proprietary chips. Furthermore, Samsung recently opened a factory in Texas for developing the A5 chip (which we previously reported) makes Intel’s attempt that much more interesting.

This possibly could happen in the 7th Generation of iPhone I will like to see an iPhone running on intel processors!

Well I hope the dream team get to work on the A6 IPAD 3 jb right away so they'll have as one concept of it when the next gen iPhone drops. I'm sure that's going to be a real mother to bust. Or maybe just maybe it'll be easier 😁

Theres another reason Apple will never go for this. Intel Medfield is an x86 instruction set processor, whereas all iphones have been based on ARM chips. Also all of the apps in the appstore are only compatible with ARM. Never gonna happen

Never gonna happen? Intel isn't stupid, they wouldn't be trying to do it if it weren't possible.

P.S. You're just as immature as you are calling me for replying to each of me responses. Just saying.
