The newest rumor says that the iPhone 5 will feature NFC chip and antenna. This not a new rumor, but now there is supposedly code evidence of NFC support in the next iPhone.
NFC is now already in several mobile phones including the new Samsung Galaxy S III. The iPhone 5 is long rumored to also get NFC. Now 9to5Mac reports that they actually found evidence of NFC coming to the iPhone 5 in a hardware core dump. The importance of NFC is not the technology, but the infrastructure and platform. What will Apple offer with NFC? Will they allow to make payments directly with the credit saved in iTunes? will it support other payment gateways? There are many open questions.
