NFC chips in iPhone 6 coming from Netherlands' NXP, report says

Evidence mounting that NFC may happen

Apple is indeed planning to incorporate NFC into the iPhone 6, using chips from Dutch firm NXP Semiconductor, say sources for the Financial Times. The technology is mainly expected to be used for mobile payments and ticketing, but might enable functions in an "Internet of things" (home automation) context. Both Apple and NXP have refused to comment on the matter.

Although rumors have had NFC coming to the iPhone for years, evidence may finally be mounting that the change is imminent. Sources for multiple prominent publications have made claims less than two weeks ahead of an Apple press event, and the company has been in talks with various parties about mobile payments. Earlier this year, it was hiring people to work on the project.
