Please be advised that the FRANKFURT story saying that Intel (INTC.O) will supply the central processing unit for Apple’s (AAPL.O) new iPhone is wrong. Intel and Apple have both denied that Intel is the supplier and the spokesman for Apple Germany has withdrawn an earlier statement saying it was. A substitute story follows:
“Intel’s is not the processor in the iPhone,” a spokeswoman for Apple in San Francisco told Reuters by telephone, denying an earlier statement by a spokesman for Apple Germany who had said the processor was Intel‘s.
Intel Corp. (INTC.O) separately also denied that it would be the supplier of the main chip inside Apple’s iPhone, but said it is supplying chips for the Apple TV.
“We are not providing the silicon inside the iPhone,” Intel spokesman Bill Kirkus told Reuters. “We are providing the silicon inside the Apple TV.”
