How to use NFC on iPhone?

What is NFC?

    Near Field Communication is a technology for wireless data transmission over short distances. This means that NFC-enabled devices that are close to each other can exchange data without a cable, Internet connection, or Bluetooth.

What can you do with NFC on iPhone?

    First of all, you can make contactless payments (in this case, your smartphone replaces a bank card). NFC is also used to:

  • Open website links and social media profiles

  • Access control for  home, office, garage 

  • Perform any task on smart home applications

  • Withdraw cash from ATMs

How to enable and start using NFC?

    Note! Your iPhone must support iOS 13 or later.

    To enable NFC on iPhone:

  • Go to Settings > Control Center > More Controls

  • Select NFC Tag Reader from the list of features

  • To use the NFC option, hold your iPhone near the NFC tag.

    Note.  Please, don’t worry, if you can't find «NFC Tag Reader» in «Control Center settings». The latest iPhone models can read NFC tags regardless of the special feature. When the iPhone is in the receiving/transmitting area of another device, the NFC function is activated automatically.

How to automate tasks using an NFC tag scanner? 

    To automate tasks using NFC on iPhone:

  • Open the Shortcuts app on your iPhone

  • Find the «Automation tab»

  • Click «Create Personal Automation» and select NFC

  • Hold your phone near the tag and scan it to assign a task for automation.

  • Name the tag as you wish and click OK to save the settings

  • After saving the automation, tapping on the tag will activate the function you programmed before. For example, you set the lights to dim or start the Music app.

What are the benefits of setting up an NFC tag?

  1. Seamless and secure communication between two devices that are close to each other

  2. An easy way to share data without manually entering or scanning QR codes

  3. Every time your iPhone scans a tag, it will trigger the action assigned to that tag

    NFC brings you comfort, efficiency, and increased productivity.
