Not surprisingly, even though NFC is built into Apple's latest phone, they've locked it down tight, which is par for the course when it comes to Apple. The NFC was put in for one purpose - Apple Payments - and while this is good news for Android fans in that it means more retailers will likely be willing to install NFC payment options which will allow us to use Google Wallet at more places, it means new iPhone 6 owners will NOT be able to use NFC Tags with their phone to trigger events or settings or share information the way Android owners can. It's too bad because a LOT of people are obviously still loyal to Apple and for anything to be fully adopted and integrated in society it needs to function on both platforms. So I am a little disappointed, but not at all surprised as it's what I always suspected Apple would do with NFC. What do you think?
