Looks like Apple is not interested to bring the NFC (Near Field Communication) in the next iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. But they are planing to bring the NFC Payment to their Apple Stores.
According to BGR Sources they came to know that Apple is making some changes to its retail Stores payment setup and iPod Touch based easy payment which will be done by NFC.
First off, Apple’s POS devices – its iPod touch-based wireless payment terminals – recently all went offline for “maintenance” for an entire day, leaving customers unable to purchase some items or return merchandise. Additionally, we have been told that there were recently multiple “overnights” in Apple retail locations, which required store employees to “assist in installing TBD devices” throughout the stores “as the retail segment of Apple grows.” Lastly, sources tell us that there have been new tables installed in stores that have different wiring compared to Apple’s standard tables.
The sources point to out to the some event which is yet to come on the 10th Anniversary or product launch.
