Next generation iphone in 2012 is expected to have NFC technology. It is the near field communication technology. enabled devices. However, it was highly expected that iphone4s would include this feature. But the launch of iphone 4s brought also the sadness with the unavailability of NFC. Currently NFC supporting devices are launched by the companies like android,symbian,blackberry and bada. But only about 10% users are available. If iphone in 2012 supports NFC, it is expected to increase the users to 50%.
“Apple is indeed one of the vendors still expected to introduce NFC-enabled operating system software (and thus hardware) in 2012.”
Not only apple, Microsoftaims higher to enable windows phone and ios to support NFC in 2012. But it is yet to decide if the news is true and promising. Major problem with the NFC is its standarization. It is expected to be fixed soon. So, there is a much impatient news awaiting ears from the fans for the nfc,apple and 2012. It is still a rumour and it hasnt come from the official sources regarding the inclusion of the nfc enabled next gen iphone.
But with the favourable patterns and trends and demands, it is almost sure fo the release. Let your finger be crossed and keep tuning in for more update on this issue.
Following conflicting rumors about whether the iPhone 4S would include near field communication (NFC) technology (rumors that were eventually decided in the negative), Digitimes reportsthat Apple is indeed one of the vendors still expected to introduce NFC-enabled operating system software (and thus hardware) in 2012. Apple’s inclusion of NFC in next year’s iPhone would appear to come as part of a tipping point for the technology, with the technology’s prevalence in the smartphone industry set to increase from about 10% to over 50% in the span of two to three years.
As Android, Symbian, BlackBerry and Bada have supported NFC (near field communication) functions and Microsoft and Apple plan to make Windows Phone and iOS support NFC in 2012, the proportion of NFC-enabled smartphones will quickly increase from less than 10% currently to over 50% in two to three years, according to Taiwan-based smartphone makers.
NFC standardization issues have been one problem slowing adoption of the technology, but with 45 wireless carriers including AT&T and Verizon now signed on to a SIM-based standard, those issues may be reaching a resolution.
Back-and-forth rumors about whether NFC would appear in the 2011 version of the iPhone led to considerable uncertainty about where Apple stood on the technology, with The New York Times noting in March that NFC would be a part of a “coming iteration” of the iPhone without specifying a product generation. By mid-May, Bernstein analysts correctly predicted not only that NFC would not be included in Apple’s forthcoming iPhone hardware but that the new iPhone would be an iPhone 4S and not a radically redesigned iPhone 5.
