His Mac in his iPhone through NFC

A source revealed plans for Apple's iPhone NFC. Beyond the rumor uncertain, it is interesting information on what is possible with this technology. NFC (Near Field Contact) is a technology that can transfer information wirelessly at very short ranges (see "The NFC: France launches in the contactless).

It is already used in the Navigo card and Moneo. The fact that Apple is experimenting with NFC is really not a surprise in itself. Nokia has already announced the technology embedded devices (see "From a Nokia NFC). To say that the iPhone 5 will be compatible with this communication system, there is not that we do not cross it.

According to Cult of Mac, Apple intends to use his iPhone in the NFC to enable users to enjoy their personal information on a foreign computer. When iPhone NFC is coupled to a client device, the user profile is downloaded. You can see the applications that were purchased on the Mac App Store and if you want to use one, it installs automatically.

Once the connection is broken NFC, all data and applications are erased from the computer. Apple save files created on a cloud so that the user finds them when in front of his machine. If commercialization of this system is uncertain, it shows that the NFC is poised to surpass the world of payment cards (see "Bluetooth NFC for speakers").
