We have been used to using the NFC function of iPhone for mobile payment. Now, the Apple Corp will further open the function of the NFC chip, which will be used as a key to open the door of the door.
The NFC chip of iPhone has a complete read and write function. It is really a pity that it only uses Apple Pay and acts as a traffic card. Apple has already joined the CoreNFC framework on iOS 11, allowing some third party App to use NFC chips, but the open access is still very limited. For example, the third party App to use NFC must ensure that the application in the front operation, if you want to use iPhone to unlock the door, then you must unlock the phone, it is far less convenient to use than Apple Pay.
In fact, Apple had planned to expand its NFC capabilities. In 2014, they worked with HID Globle to develop a security system. Now employees working in the apple park will be able to unlock the door with the iPhone near the building and office entrance guard system. After activating the full function of NFC, the pairing of iPhone and many speakers will also be much more convenient, and these functions have been implemented on Android phones.
It is still a week from June 4th, when Apple will hold the annual global developer conference WWDC2018, if the new features of NFC will come with iOS 12, then both iPhone 6 and later will be able to get complete NFC functionality through the upgrade system, and whether the era of unlocking iPhone will come. Let's wait and see.
