NXP to Produce NFC Chips for Apple's iPhone 6
Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
Adding to the pile of rumors suggesting NFC hardware will be built into the next iPhone, a report on Friday narrows down the as-yet-unannounced component's source to Dutch chipmaker NXP, the same firm that supplies Apple with the M7 coprocessor.
Financial Times reporters also say that the guys from Cupertino are currently working on their own mobile payment system, which is based on NFC. Looks like the next-gen iPhone will indeed become an innovative product.
In case you don't know, Apple will officially unveil its 4.7-inch iPhone 6 at a media event on Tuesday, September 9th. Whether we'll see a 5.5-inch device is still a question without an answer.
Apart from the new smartphone, the guys from Cupertino may show us their long-anticipated iWatch. This rumor, however, hasn't been confirmed yet.
