No but I've spent time dispelling the sour-grapes-based misconceptions here about NFC. I believe I've also said that Apple would use NFC eventually. Now I'm predicting that the next iPhone will have NFC. Between the uselessness of Passbook, which is begging for NFC payment capability, and the integration of a fingerprint scanner for security in the 5S, Apple has laid the foundation for implementing NFC in the next full redesign.
