apple logo2NFC has been a feature that has been long-rumored to make its way into the iPhone, although to date we have not seen anything like that yet. However could it be that the iPhone 6 will finally incorporate the technology? Well according to a report from BrightWire, their sources are suggesting that yes, NFC will make making its debut in the iPhone 6.

Their sources claim that Apple has managed to strike up a deal with China’s UnionPay which will see the company’s services integrated into Passbook. It’s an interesting claim because a couple of years ago, Apple’s Phil Schiller was not particularly enamored by the technology, although it was only last month that an analyst suggested that Apple was finally considering the technology.

This could be in line with other rumors that hints that Apple could also be interested in a mobile payment system of their own, and NFC would be a good way to allow users to pay for transactions. Combine that with Touch ID, it would definitely go towards creating a very secure system in which customers would feel more comfortable paying for items and services with their phone.

Of course all of this is just a rumor for now, but what do you guys think? After hearing about NFC and the iPhone for the past few years, could it finally be that Apple will be incorporating the technology into their mobile devices? Much like how Apple could finally be releasing phones with larger displays?
