In a new report that cites “sources familiar with the matter,” Wired claims that the future iPhone will be equipped with an NFC chip that will allow the user to make payments with their phone.
The publication writes that this feature will be one of the main features that will be highlighted during the expected special event on September 9.
A mobile payment service makes a perfect choice for Apple at the moment, the report notes.
Thanks to iTunes and numerous iOS users, the company has a huge customer base and over 800 million credit cards stored.
In recent months there has been growing speculation that Apple is working on a payment service.
In recent years, Apple has registered a number of patents relating to an e-wallet.
In addition, earlier this year, Apple CEO Tim Cook has shown strong interest in this service.
