Logic board for Apple iPhone 6 is spotted, reveals support for NFC and Wi-Fi 802.11ac

Logic board for Apple iPhone 6 is spotted, reveals support for NFC and Wi-Fi 802.11ac
Out of France Saturday morning, comes a leaked picture alleged to show the logic board for the upcoming Apple iPhone 6. This appears to be for the 4.7 inch version of the handset. The board does reveal some clues about the next iteration of Apple's iconic smartphone, such as its ability to support NFC, along with the faster Wi-Fi 802.11ac technology.

And while the board looks similar to the one that graces the inside of the Apple iPhone 5s, there are some subtle differences, including a longer piece that is situated where the top of the device would be. That would seem to be another confirmation that the iPhone 6 will employ a larger screen.

Screw holes in the logic board match up with previous leaks that we've seen of the iPhone 6 rear shell, confirming the authenticity of both parts. We expect to see the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 unveiled in September with the 5.5 inch variant getting introduced the following month.

And adding NFC they'll claim that it is innovation. Also their camera. What a bummer same old speech every year.

I hope they use MIMO WiFi like on the recent iPads. MIMO 802.11ac would be blazing fast for those who have an ac router.

The only reason I could see them adding NFC is for a big push for payments. Otherwise they're doing a lot of the same functionality with iBeacons.

Yes ANDROID fans, NFC was pointless until now that Apple has brought it to the iPhone 6.

Guess who uses their phones to make purchases in stores through NFC?

Damn Smurf, you got burned by DJ on that one dude. You're not slipping are you? +1 DJ

Lol Poor Smurf... Do any of you use NFC for automation? I mainly use it with Tasker around the house and in my car and ofcourse at work.

I've used it on my note, like twice just to see how it worked. It'll be bide to have in the iPhone. Once apple implements it, it'll blow up.

I know they can make it popular, don't mind as Android benefits from it as well :) I use it in my car, nfc sticker underneath the holder, which turns on gps & speedcams, also turns on BT to connect to my car. At home on my computer desk, turns on my desk lights (Hue) and my computer. Nightstand to turn down volume & turn on nightstand lights (Hue again)

I use NFC for file transfer between devices. There isn't any business i frequent within 300 miles that use NFC for payments. That's what happens when you live in the boonies.

Exactly. Why can't people understand that nothing matters until Apple "invents" it?

NFC hardware is indeed pointless without the right software.
