- Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger wants to court Apple's chip-making business.
- The comments come soon after Intel launched an attack ad campaign against Apple's M1 Macs.
A week after launching an attack ad campaign against Apple's new Apple silicon Macs, Intel's CEO now says that the company wants to build chips for the company.
In a press release on Intel's website, the company's new CEO Pat Gelsinger has announced that the company is founding a new Intel Foundry Services division of the company to try and make itself known for its processor manufacturing.
As part of that new venture, Gelsinger says that the company wants to go after Apple as a potential customer. As reported by MacRumors, this was surprising to a lot of people especially since the company has been running ads that bash Apple's new M1 Macs.
It appears that Intel is planning to position itself as a powerhouse in the foundry space and could potentially help build Apple's custom processors in the future if the two companies were able to reach an agreement.

It is currently unclear if Intel and Apple are actually in talks about the company taking on any chip manufacturing, but Intel might want to cut those attack ads out if it wants to become a partner to Apple.
