NFC on the iPhone 6 is restricted to Apple Pay


Sources at Apple have confirmed to Cult of Mac that the NFC chip on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will only for used for Apple Pay. Unfortunately, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users will miss out on the enormous NFC uses android users had heard for quite a long time.

Developers are disappointed because Apple is locking out this feature from 3rd party apps just like they did with  Touch ID on the iPhone 5s. Apple is keeping its NFC restricted from developers, at least for now.  Cult of Mac said an Apple Representative sent them an email confirming this however Apple declined to comment on future plans for the NFC chip.

That’s why NFC as a standalone feature on the iPhone 6 is not advertised but Apple is promoting Apple Pay which means the Android boys are still laughing at you.
