Apple joins NFC Forum

Logo nfc forumNearly one year after launching its first devices with NFC chips, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, to enable the Apple Pay mobile payments system, Apple has joined the official NFC Forum as a top-tier sponsor.
This week, Apple made it clear that NFC technology is a high priority for the company both now and in the future.
“The top tier of NFC Forum membership, sponsor membership, entitles an organization to a seat on the NFC Forum board of directors, the association’s governing body,” NFC Forum director Paula Hunter said in a statement. “We are delighted to welcome Apple to our board of directors as an NFC Forum sponsor member.”
Apple isn’t saying much on the matter, but its focus on the NFC Forum speaks volumes on its behalf with regard to the importance of NFC to the future of Apple’s products and services.
