More iPad 2 Details, NFC Accessories … Oh Yeah, The iPhone 5 As Well

If recent leaks are accurate, iPad 2 and iPhone 5 owners will enjoy accessories with near field communication capabilities. iLounge reports from their source that, “Apple is actively developing new accessories that will communicate with the near-field radio chips reportedly built into new iPads and iPhones. In the most basic implementation, an accessory could announce its presence and potential functions to an iPad or iPhone without the need for a Bluetooth or similar connection.”

Could you imagine the endless possibilities Apple has probably dreamed up for the iPad 2 and iPhone 5? It’s no secret how well Apple plans for future releases. Furthermore, their accessories functions better than most. Maybe that NFC expert they hired and all of those patents that Apple obtained around the basis of NFC, will come to fruition in the coming months.

So if this rumor is true, what iPad or iPhone accessory would you like to see use NFC technology? Hit up our comments and let us know!
