We have been hearing rumors over the last few years that future iPhones would come with NFC technology, and now according to a recent report, the iPhone 6 will finally get NFC.
The news comes from Brightwire, who have said that the iPhone 6 will come with some NFC payment functions, and Apple has apparently come to an agreement with China UnionPay for a new mobile payment service in China.
Under the deal with China UnionPay, users would be able to download the bank card organization’s app to Passbook in their iPhones and make mobile payments on over 3 million China UnionPay’s “QuickPass” POS machines in China, the source said.
The iPhone 6 will come in two different versions, one with a 4.7 inch display, the other with a 5.5 inch display, the 4.7 inch model with launch first, either in August or September, and the 5.5 inch model is expected to launch around one to two months later.
The next generation iPhone is said to come with a new camera sensor that will feature electronic image stabilization, this could possibly be a new 8 megapixel camera module.
The handset will also feature the new Apple A8 processor, this will be Apple’s second generation 64-bit processor, and it is also expected to come with more RAM than the iPhone 5S.
We are expecting Apple to launch the iPhone 6, the Apple iWatch and Apple iOS 8 at the same time, and iOS 8 will come with Apple’s new Healthbook app for fitness and heath monitoring.
