New iPhone 6 Hardware Sheet May Show NFC

We already know that Apple is almost certainly planning both a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch iPhone Air (or iPhone 6L). While nearly every hardware piece has been leaked, and millions of photos snapped, we still don’t know every last feature that will ship with the device.

A new leaked schematics document provided by MacRumors today originally appeared to suggest that at least one of Apple’s upcoming iPhones, either the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6L, or both, is going to offer 1GB of RAM. That’s obviously a big yawn for Android fans, where 1GB of RAM is typically reserved for lower-end smartphones and 3GB of RAM is common among some flagships. Except, it turns out that the document was referring to NAND flash storage, and not actually RAM.

There’s another little jewel of information in the document spotted by 9to5Mac, however. The news outlet spotted a part dubbed “PN65V” that matches a part provided by an NFC maker. Is Apple finally going to add NFC to the iPhone, after mocking it for all of these years? We’ll know come Sept. 9.
