Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 has NFC! Hooray, hooray!

However, it seems NFC functionality can be used by Apple Pay only, and the devices cannot read or write NFC tags. Further, it is even possible that the phones lack the necessary hardware to interface with passive tags.

    Yeah…. It probably wont, Apple have kind of used up all of their original Ideas (and un-original ideas too)

    apple’s nfc is literally causing headaches and it’s impossible to disable. Did Apple use different NFC tech than the Android phones?

    • That’s interesting. Why would you want to disable it?

      On android devices you can generally turn NFC on and off at will.
