Thanks, but where is the "not a solution to any current problem" quote and why is it some how hypocritical after two full years to now have the technology be where they need it to be. Remember that NFC is absolutely pointless as only HW or only HW and SW on your device if there are no partners in place to make it convenient feature to use… and that's before you even consider security, which may require the 2nd generation of their secure enclave on the A-series chip.

Oh, the same interview. AI’s article just doesn’t show it.

I thought NFC was more passive, if it can be turned off until "unlocked" that would solve security.

ETA: Ah, I see it's an extension of that earlier RFID passive system.

It can always receive a transmission, but the user controls any outgoing transmissions, usually via an app.
