A couple of days back there was word about something else coming with the IPhone 6 this fall. According to some sources, Apple was reportedly in talks with its partners to launch a Mobile Wallet. Through the Mobile Wallet consumers could make payments directly from their iPhone 6. This would eliminate the need for credit cards or any other form of payments as long as you had your iPhone 6 on you. In addition to this, Apple was reported to base the Mobile Wallet platform around Near Field Communications or NFC. This, coupled with a secure element on the iPhone 6 would make the smartphone suitable for mobile payments. Well now nowhereelse.fr has some photos which it claims are of the logic board of the iPhone 6. On the logic board shown in these photos NFC is present as well.
