Apple iPhone 5 prototype allegedly had NFC, last minute speculation says final device might too
The Apple iPhone 5 is a device that you can’t have missed. Unlike most previous iPhone launches where all details were kept behind closed doors literally just before the official announcement, we’ve seen tons of rumors and leaks about the iPhone 5. One of the most convincing and logical suggestions was that due to the metallic plate covering most of the backside of the new iPhone, Apple won’t be able to fit in an NFC chip that requires a lot of space and works best when hidden under plastic.

Apple developer Will Strafach however doesn’t agree and says it’s too early to write the NFC chip off the list.



N42AP here stands for one of the earlier iPhone 5 prototypes. We don’t know whether that’s good enough of an evidence, but it certainly adds some more drama to what seems to be an announcement that everyone thinks Apple won’t surprise. Let’s see - it all start in just around two hours.
