The motherboards of the iPhone 6 could have a space reserved for NFC connectivity

Comparison of motherboards for iPhone

It is one of the features that are most desired in Apple devices for a long time, the wireless connection NFC (Near Field Communications) through Bluetooth. This technology is present in many other Android smartphones and allows users to be able to link your terminal to any nearby device or accessory, be it a wireless speaker, a multimedia receiver or a dataphone to make payments. With a simple touch Communication between both devices is carried out without having to go through the phone settings. It is an advance and convenience that the Cupertino company has been leaving aside, but it seems would be introduced in the next iPhone 6As the analysis of the leaked motherboards reveals that there is an ideal gap to install the chip with NFC technology.

But how has that conclusion been reached? Comparing leaked motherboards of the 6-inch iPhone 4,7 and the 6-inch iPhone 5,5 with which the iPhone 5S currently includes, there is a ideal gap for this chip (red boxes in the image above). The connector size on the board for a chip matches the size of the chips NFC PN65, 32-pin, 5mm x 5mm size, like the one mounted on the terminals of the competition. In the image below, the size of the hole for the supposed NFC chip can be seen on the motherboard, in a red box, compared to the hole to install a data connection chip, in green.

Hole for the NFC chip in the iPhone 6

At the moment nothing else is conjecture about a leaked motherboard that it is not known if it will really say the one mounted on the iPhone 6, what if it is true is that Apple lags behind the competition When it comes to linking devices via bluetooth, NFC technology is very fast, useful and avoids having to go through the iOS settings to configure a new bluetooth device to link it. We will have to wait for Apple to present the device and surprise us with its features on September 9 at the Keynote that will already be preparing.

Do you think this can be the confirmation that the iPhone 6 integrates NFC technology?
