A new report from The Information (subscription required) notes that Apple is presently in talks regarding expanding NFC use in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to go beyond mobile payments. While the NFC chip in the new iPhone models is currently restricted to use by Apple Pay, this new report suggests that the company is seeking partnerships to implement the technology into areas such as building security and public transit, conceivably to let people use iPhones as replacements for business ID cards and metro passes. The report specifically notes that Apple has already been in talks with HID Global and Cubic, two companies that develop electronic solutions in these areas. [via 9to5Mac]
