Not too long ago, Apple announced changes to their software products with iOS 13. As ever, there was a lot going on, but the one that interested us the most was the introduction of core NFC.
Apple haven’t always been fully on board with NFC. The functionality has been there, but has mostly been contained to features such as Apple Pay. Over the last few years, however, each iOS update over recent years has seen Apple being to increase and expand NFC functionality.
We’ve put together a comparison of NFC before the update and now, so you can see exactly how iOS 13 has changed.

NFC with iOS 13
The new positive response from Apple towards NFC is likely due to how their competitors Google and Samsung have embraced NFC from the beginning. Here is what we know Apple is adding to NFC capabilities with iOS 13.
It is also worth noting that the attendee credentials to WWDC this year used NFC for tickets, rather than the barcode used in previous years. This shows Apple’s commitment to incorporating and using NFC technology across their products. Overall, we’re starting to see Apple finally get on board with the true extent of NFC, which should help to enable the market to significantly grow.
