Brian Klug and Anand Lal Shimpi for AnandTech:
Given the primarily metal backside of the new iPhone, it’s highly unlikely that NFC is in the cards for this generation. In fact, given the very little space at top and bottom dedicated to those glass RF windows, you can almost entirely rule it out.
Dalrymple says yep.
I remember hearing about NFC support six months ahead of the iPhone 4. So much potential, but it just never went anywhere.
