Alasan mengapa fitur NFC dan Wireless Charging tidak ada pada iPhone 5

Hasil interview Phil Schiller oleh Ina Fried dari AllThingsD:

Mengenai NFC:

Apple Senior VP Phil Schiller said that Passbook alone does what most customers want and works without existing merchant payment systems.
It’s not clear that NFC is the solution to any current problem, Schiller said. “Passbook does the kinds of things customers need today.”

“NFC belum kami anggap sebagai solusi dari masalah yang ada saat ini”, kurang lebih begitu pernyataan Phil Schiller.

Mengenai Wireless Charging:

As for wireless charging, Schiller notes that the wireless charging systems still have to be plugged into the wall, so it’s not clear how much convenience they add. The widely-adopted USB cord, meanwhile, can charge in wall outlets, computers and even on airplanes, he said.
“Having to create another device you have to plug into the wall is actually, for most situations, more complicated,” Schiller said.

Intinya, fitur NFC dan Wireless charging belum ada pada iPhone karena… Apple belum mau memasukkannya. Sesimple itu.
