Morgan Stanley analysts believe Apple will soon bring NFC equipment in the next iPhone.
According to analyst Craig Hettenbach, NFC technology has now reached a critical point son an iPhone with NFC will play a crucial role in Apple’s future.
A recent patent application details an NFC-based wallet that enables users to make purchases wirelessly through their phone.
Cupertino is also working on adapting its in-store system sales to one that supports NFC.
According to Morgan Stanley, Apple collaborates with NXP to provide the required wireless hardware.
NXP signed a licensing agreement with a client in late 2013, which the analyst believe to be Apple, in connection with its ID business.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo speculated about NFC support for the iPhone in his Apple forecasts.
