Não há homologação pela Anatel Americana(FCC) do NFC, está na encolha. Tão pouco há antena para o chip. Dizem que seria um esquema de segurança do Apple Pay para compras in-app.
The key to NFC in the iPad Air 2 is that it affords the possibility of becoming an Apple Pay cash register with no dongle needed. Conceivably, it could expand the number of outlets that take Apple Pay from around 40 to anyone selling stuff who owns the latest iPad. It brings Apple Pay out from the big box store and into farmers’ markets and boutiques. (traduzir)
