Will Apple ever give NFC a chance? | Business Spectator

Near Field Communications (NFC) has one again failed to float Apple’s boat with the latest iterations of the iPhone giving it a wide berth, and don’t expect it to make an appearance in the iPhone 6 either.

The lack of NFC capability on the latest iPhones will grate those who have been pinning their hopes on making payments as simple as waving a phone in front of a reader. For many the inclusion of the technology on the iPhone was seen as the seminal moment needed to take NFC primetime, but Apple isn’t interested and it’s hard to see it change its mind in a hurry.

It’s undoubtedly a blow to wider NFC adoption and Google’s acquisition of Bump Technologies this week shows that even the traditional backers of the technology might be considering their options.
