Apple is putting great efforts to make iPhone more usable for contactless interactions much like the Apple Pay payments. New reports claim that the Apple will be offering NFC access to third-party developers, which will make way for advanced interactive Apps.
Apple aims to make iPhone compatible to be used as s a hotel door key or as a virtual transit card for easier transportation. Previously, Apple had added the core NFC framework in iOS 11 which allows apps to use the NFC chip as an arbitrary scanner of RFID tags.
We hope to see the announcement of iOS 12 in WWDC next month where Apple will be showcasing it’s main software platforms.
