New iPhone 5 Pictures Have No NFC Chip | Photo
It was assumed that the iPhone 5 will get NFC chip for wireless short range. However, the new spy shots of the internal components of a smartphone argue that Apple novelty still be without NFC.
Last week we published photos of iPhone 5 NFC chip where you could see an unknown component. Its dimensions are the same as the size of some of the NFC chip, suggesting that the implementation of this technology in the new smartphone is true.
However, as looking on insider pictures journalists probably took earpiece for NFC module. Earlier, researchers have tended to the fact that iPhone 5 will not have NFC chip. Taking into account mainly the metal back of the new iPhone, the probability of having the chip is extremely low. A lot of space is needed for NFC antenna – more than there is at the bottom or top inside the phone, which could place it.
NFC Support is one of the most controversial elements of the new gadget, Apple always used to get round this technology. NFC is a technology for short-range mobile transactions. With it, for example, can pay for the subway pass through the turnstiles. The emergence of NFC in the iPhone could turn your phone into a digital wallet and extend the Passbook app in iOS 6.
So what is this mysterious component on the photo? According to the website AnandTech, it could be “just the controller screen and touch sensors,” which is designed for iPhone 5 display, made by in-cell technology. Anyway, it seems that Apple once again refuses to support NFC in its current period of development. Perhaps the company is not ready to implement it. Last year, Apple refused to use this technology because of the “lack of uniform standards in the industry.”
