One advantage many critics say that Android’s devices have over Apple’s line of iPhones is their Near Field Communication abilities. This week many are saying “not for much longer”.For those of you who don’t know what NFC is, it is a standard set for mobile phones that allow you to connect with another person’s mobile phone by either making contact with or being near another person’s device. According to Apple Insider, this may no longer be the case. Recent “leaked” images of the internal components of the iPhone 6 are showing a real possibility of a (finally) NFC enabled device.
“… the “iPhone 6” motherboard will feature an NFC chip, as well as a wireless 802.11ac Wi-Fi module, both of which would be firsts for wireless connectivity in Apple’s iPhone lineup … As for near-field communications, Apple has been rumored to adopt NFC support for e-wallet functions for years, but until now the company has instead relied on a combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for short-range functions like iBeacons and AirDrop.
