Although there are lot more huge rumors rounding up since from the long time, the latest to add-on is that Apple’s latest iPhone – the iPhone 5 will includes the Near Field Commiunication (NFC) controllers which is directly connected to the power management unit (PMU), means in layman language, the next iPhone 5 will let you buy products as well as share files through NFC technology, reports 9to5Mac. Lastly, a video surfaced over the web claiming to be the rear side of the smartphone.

“There aren’t any transactions in it yet, but I think that’s how Apple is going to sneak up on the industry. They are going to get people used to using it and then all of a sudden they will allow credit cards to be used in there, on the next iPhone, which will include NFC,” said Jim Peters, CTO of SITA “There is a lot of debate that NFC will never take off because of all the arguments. But you need to get ready, this is coming. This is going to happen. By the end of the year the majority of smartphones that you go and buy will have NFC on them. If in October the next iPhone comes out and it has NFC on it, it’s game over.”
