Kelly Hodgkins:

According to Morgan Stanley, Apple is choosing NFC as the key technology for its mobile payments system, with semiconductor company NXP likely providing the necessary wireless hardware. NXP has an existing relationship with Apple, supplying the M7 motion-sensing chip found in the iPhone 5s.

Is this the fifth straight or six straight year that Apple has been said to be including NFC in the forthcoming iPhone? I’ve lost count. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen eventually, but it’s especially hard to take this seriously. Also, Apple is clearly wed to Bluetooth LE. Do they want another chip in the ever-slimming and power-efficient phone?
