In another report by AppleInsider, it appears Apple is intent on including the NFC chip and pushing for convenient mobile payment system on the iPhone 6. The leaked images show a logic board on an iPhone-like device. The board sports a small chip suspected to the NFC controller under NXP. This will supports previous reports about the inclusion of the feature on the upcoming iPhone 6. The chip does not provide details about the name of the manufacturer. It just goes by the name "NSD425." While the chip cannot be found under NXP offerings, Apple has always been known to coordinate with silicon producers for such pieces.
