Rumor Mill Puts Mobile Wallet in iPhone
Top Tech News
Apple is moving toward the mobile wallet world with its next iPhone. The technology giant has partnered with retailers, banks and major payment networks to make it happen, according to a Bloomberg report.
Bloomberg cited "a person familiar with the situation” who said that Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are among the big names working with Apple to enable a new mobile wallet feature on the iPhone 6. The device will make its first appearance at a Sept. 9 launch event.
"The new iPhone will make mobile payments easier by including a near-field communication (NFC) chip for the first time, the person said,” Bloomberg's Matt Townsend reported. "That advancement along with Touch ID, a fingerprint recognition reader that debuted on the most recent iPhone, will allow consumers to securely pay for items in a store with the touch of a finger.”
New Life to NFC?
Apple is somewhat late to the mobile wallet game, a nascent yet rapidly growing industry. Companies already offering mobile wallets include Google, Citigroup and Macy's.
Apple could not immediately be reached for comment, but according to NXT-ID, a biometric authentication company behind a smart wallet called Wocket, Apple submitted a public patent application that describes a detailed backend architecture for a mobile wallet designed to hold digital credit and debit cards and coupons from a range of merchants and financial institutions.
"The filing describes the system as capable of powering mobile transactions conducted via QR codes, the cloud and contactless NFC," the firm reported. "It's also explicitly engineered to handle large bursts of traffic, such as can occur on a so-called 'launch day' of a client device."
