Apple Granted an RFID Tag Microchip Integration Design Patent

Apple's Senior VP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller introduced the iPhone 7 on September seventh and informed us that they had added Felica, Japan's version of NFC, to the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2. In October Apple's CEO tested out the technology in Japan when taking a ride on the Yamanote Line railway. Felica uses NFC-F technology which is a faster form of RFID with Type B communications. Today we learn that Apple was granted a patent for an RFID tag and microchip integration design. The technology was gained through LuxVue Technology, a company they acquired back in 2014. Whether today's patent is used in Apple's iPhone today or this is something for the future is unknown at this time, but the patent does reference Japan's faster RFID standard.
