iPhones don’t support NFC and that’s a blooper for some iPhone fans as they would like to see their beloved iPhones to come with the Near Field Communications (NFC) support. It seems like iPhone 6 might finally come equipped with a NFC chipset.
According to recent leaks and reports, the new iPhones might finally come with a NFC chip which is frequently used for making mobile payments. The reports of the new iPhones featuring NFC leaked showing a battery from Apple’s 5.5 inch iPhone 6 last week. A report from Taiwanese newspaper Apple Daily had mentioned that the iPhone 6 will include a PN65V NFC chip from NXP but they did not offer any specific evidence to support their motion.
Chinese repair firm GeekBar has now shared a wiring schematic for such a chip to be included on the iPhone 6. NXP is rumoured to be a partner for producing NFC chips to be put on the new the iPhones and the company’s PN65 NFC package is already used in a number of Android mobile devies.
We would surely know about if the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone L (reportedly iPhone 6 with 5.5 inch will be called iPhone L) when they are announced on September 9. The iPhone 6 will supposedly also come with Sapphire Glass which will also cost more than the normal iPhone 6 with Gorilla Glass 3. Hopefully, all the rumors would be put to dust on September 9. Stay tuned for more info on the same.
