With iBeacon, Apple is going to dump on NFC and embrace the internet of things

With iBeacon, Apple is going to dump on NFC and embrace the internet of things | Mobility & Financial Services | Scoop.it
When iOS 7 is released next week, retailers and other large indoor spaces are going to be able to use a technology called iBeacon to send data over short distances to iPhones. Here’s how it will work.
Katia Hilal's insight:

The use of iBeacon for payments may not be that straight forward. The concept of "card holder present" needs to be supported by evidence like making contact between the user device and the payment terminal. Another complexity is related to the security aspect that has been thoroughly analyzed and standardized for NFC.

This being said, it is always thrilling to see a new type of access emerging, and with it, a whole lot of new usage possibilities.

From Passbook to Facebook: Monetizing Mobile Money | Mobility & Financial Services | Scoop.it

Much has been made of the conspicuous absence of Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology from Apple’s latest iPhone 5, a move that shirked industry expectations and called into question the future of NFC. But while the phone itself falls short of industry-wide NFC hopes, Apple’s newly-introduced Passbook app on the iOS 6 may be a harbinger of big changes in the mobile payment ecosystem over the coming years.
