Last time it was the processor for the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. This time, Apple has made the same mistake (not with the chipset but with the LTE modem). The LTE modems which are used on the Apple iPhone X are mainly sourced from two major LTE modem manufacturers. The Intel and Qualcomm are the suppliers for the LTE modem for the Apple iPhone X.

In a low network condition, the Qualcomm counterpart performed better compared to the Intel’s counterpart. If we look at the actual model, the Intel’s offering an XMM 7860 Modem and the Qualcomm’s X16 outperforms for the most part. This is because the X16 Modem from LTE counterpart offers a 4×4 carrier aggregation using MIMO antennas, which is missing on the Intel’s modem. However, Apple has disabled the carrier aggregation on both modems and we have no idea about the actual reason for these differences.

As there is a lawsuit case going on between Apple and Intel, if Apple wins the same, the company is planning to stick with Intel (which also provides the chipset for the MacBook lineup), so, in next few years, the company might get better in next few years.

Here are the performance graphs conducted between the Apple iPhone X that runs on Intel and Qualcomm. So, judge yourself by the difference. However, this doesn’t mean that the Apple iPhone X with an Intel modem is slower, however, it is a tad bit slower in comparison with the Qualcomm counterpart.

What one can do about this? 

There is no way to correct this or to get an Apple iPhone X, which is powered Qualcomm. As there will be no marks on the retail package or the smartphone. One can only discover LTE model after setting up the device and installing the third party apps like Phone tested via Apple App store. So, its the fate that decides to offer you an Intel or Qualcomm powered Apple iPhone X.
