Didn’t we see it coming? Apple’s new iPhone 5 and iPad 2 are going to feature NFC (Near Field Technology). The information has been leaked from the hardware manufacturers and according to them the company has been asked by Apple to produce the hardware, with an order of ten million units placed for the new iPhone handset.
Google and HTC’s Nexus S already support the hardware to make it happen because NFC is definitely making its mark in the near future. A report from Bloomberg cites Richard Doherty of Envisioning Group saying that ‘Apple sources’ have told him that an NFC-equipped iPhone is indeed on the way.
