According to The Wall Street Journal, which has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple’s upcoming product plans, Apple will include near field communication, or NFC, in the iPhone 6 and its upcoming smartwatch, two products that are expected to be unveiled side-by-side at the company’s September 9th media event next week.

Many reports regarding the iPhone 6 live in a back-and-forth, tug-o-war situation, where at any point one rumor could get crushed to the ground while another sees a fresh new stretch in the lime light. According to a new report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, that’s exactly what’s happening all over again.
At this point, Apple should probably just announce the iPhone 6 already. But wait, they only wish “they could say more,” so we’re just going to have to keep waiting until September 9. Until then, how about more leaks of the purported 4.7-inch iPhone 6 to hold you over?
With officially one week until Apple is expected to take the wraps off the highly-anticipated iPhone 6, we have one of the last internal component leaks that we are likely to see ahead of the official announcement. This time around, a leaked photo of a purported internal battery pack for the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 has surfaced on the French website Nowhereelse. The alleged battery has a 2,915 mAh capacity, much larger than any other iPhone battery released to date.
Apple is expected to unveil the hotly anticipated next generation iPhone at the media event on Tuesday, September 9 at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of De Anza College in Cupertino, which will finally put an end to the rumors and speculations.
We take a close look at all the new features, specifications and improvements coming to the new iPhone based on the rumors, speculations and leaked parts.
Up to this point, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has been getting the majority of leaks, especially tuned towards the hardware. As we inch closer to the September 9 announcement date, though, the 5.5-inch variant has certainly begun seeing its fair share of time in the lime light. A new video has popped up, allegedly showcasing the larger device’s rear shell.
On August 29, the iPhone 6 was unofficially unveiled, piece-by-piece, from the inside out, based entirely on leaked images. While certainly not official by any means, it has revealed quite a bit about the unofficial handset. A newly surfaced image is now showcasing the iPhone 6’s A8 processor, along with a certain amount of RAM for good measure.
The reports regarding near field communications (NFC) functionality in the iPhone 6 have certainly picked up steam, and with each new report, it looks even more likely. On August 28, for instance, WIRED reported that NFC will be a “benchmark” feature in the iPhone 6 for their new mobile payments initiative. Now, a new image of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6’s logic board seemingly confirms those previous reports.
While there have been numerous leaks depicting what could be the rear shell for the upcoming iPhone 6, a pair of leaked photos this morning provide one of the more close up looks at the component. Unlike in previous leaks, the rear shell has a colored antenna band that matches the overall silver and grey design of the smartphone.
