Apple iOS 12 will be disclosed soon at the company’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which begins from 4th June to June 8. While no major hardware declaration is expected, iOS 12 launch with new features. According to reports more focus is given to the quality. The reports also inform that Apple’s iOS 12 will expand NFC capabilities on iPhones.
Apple iOS 12 will launch with a new NFC potential. This feature will allow the users to unlock doors with the technology. Presently, NFC on the iPhone is limited to Apple Pay and mobile payments, unlike on Android phones, where NFC supports more features.
NFC and its benefits
NFC stands for near field communication and it seems like Apple will exceed the functions for this future. Apple users could soon pay for transit fares, open door, verify identity with the NFC Chip on their devices.
Even, Apple employees have started using their iPhones to enter and exit buildings and offices on the campus. NFC is a more secure process of authentication in contrast to Bluetooth.
The report informs that the Apple next OS is codenamed ‘peace’. Even this time the company will aim at improving quality, rather than rushing all the new features.
In fact, features which are not perfected will be pushed to the iOS 13 build. Apple iOS 12 will come with support for universal apps as well where both macOS 10.14 and iOS 12 will support one app that can work on iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
Apple iOS 12 is also expected to feature more parental controls and improved DND mode. The company will likely introduce the public beta of iOS 12, macOS 10.14, the new watchOS, etc after WWDC 2018.
The Apple users will be able to test out the upcoming software on their devices. However, the final public build of iOS 12 will likely come in mid-September after the new iPhone X for 2018 has been disclosed.
