With competition from Samsung and their new Samsung Galaxy III smart phone heating up, Apple is under pressure to unveil an iPhone upgrade that has the “wow,” factor that was missing for many consumers when the company replaced the iPhone 4 with the 4s. Rumors surrounding Apple’s new device have been swirling literally since the day the 4s was released, with many reports indicating the next iPhone would make the leap from the 3.5″ screen that has been the standard since the phones creation in 2007, to a 4″+ screen that has become popular across the board for smart phones.
The latest news surrounding the iPhone 5 centers around NFC, near field communication. The introduction of such technology could allow for better integration of payment services, and possibly even be the start of replacing credit cards.
