Apple showed off PassBook as one of the new features in iOS 6 that allows users to use their phone as a wallet and pay for goods and services consumed and used by them. Now with the introduction of NFC it will be one of the simplest ways of achieving this , which makes it quite similar to Google’s Wallet and Microsoft’s recently announced ‘Wallet’ app, which serves the same purpose. According to the Jim Peters, CTO of SITA, Apple is going to incorporate NFC into Passbook because Apple just thinks about how they can make it really user friendly, There is a lot of debate that NFC will never take off , But all of us need to get ready, because it is surely coming. By the end of the year the majority of smartphones that you go and buy will have NFC on them. If in October the next iPhone comes out and it has NFC on it, it will be game over for other companies.”
There have been rumors in the market that NFC will be there with the introduction of Apple iPhone 5 which is supposed to be launch in the coming October. Since it has not been launched yet, not much information is available about it. Talking about the Apple iPhone 5 features – it will work on iOS 5 and will have a A5 dual-core Processor. Apple iPhone 5 pictures have been leaked and it seems that it is has undergo a complete makeover with a brand new look and quite slimmer and thinner as compared to its predecessor Apple iPhone 4S . Apple iPhone 5 price is expected to be around rs. 45,000. However, there is some problems with its implementation because NFC is a set of standards, and the standards sub-set used to support it in some countries and by some operators is different in different places. This has played a huge problem in its wide-scale adoption of the technology, as we have seen that the previous attempts have been failed like that of Google Wallet. Apple never introduces a new feature for the sake of introducing it, they will only add it if there is an infrastructure ready to support it, so if the iPhone 5 will indeed have NFC, you can expect mobile payments to really take off in a few months time.
