NFC: Will Apple Make Resolutions to Adopt It in 2013?

When the iPhone 5 was released, many were shocked that near field communication (NFC) was not going to be supported. NFC has not become mainstream simply because most mobile devices do not support it. Apple’s adoption of the technology would be a huge factor in increasing NFC’s popularity.

NFC fans will be happy to know that Apple recently filed a patent for NFC technology in combination with its Passbook.

If Apple adds NFC to the iPhone, it will certainly help lead to the widespread usage of NFC and mobile payments. Do you think Apple will add NFC technology to its next iteration of the iPhone? If so, will NFC-enabled iPhone’s be a game-changer in NFC adoption? Share your thoughts by commenting below, or on our Facebook or twitter pages.
