iPhone Hacked to Work With NFC Devices [Video]

Posted by · 14274 views · Translate
Jailbreak developer Elias Limneos has posted a video demonstrating the usage of 'locked' NFC functions on the iPhone.

Playing with the “locked” NFC chip on iPhone :D

Recent Apple devices have an NFC chip used for specific features like Apple Pay. Unfortunately, Apple hasn't allowed developers to use the chip to communicate with other NFC equipped devices.

In Limneos' proof of concept video we can see the iPhone alert to the presence of an NFC device and then alert again when it's absent. Of course, this requires a jailbroken iPhone.

It appears we'll soon see a tweak that can enable greater NFC functionality on compatible devices. On Twitter, Limeos says, "Sure I’ll release, I’ll finish my tests and release it." He also notes, "I guess this is how I’ll be unlocking my car doors from now on."

Take a look at the video below and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Elias is a very reputable dev on Cydia so no turning to the dark side or careless handling and putting the iPhone at a risk. Looking forward to this like the CarPlay tweak!!! O.O

Can someone explain the implications on the secure enclave. I thought NFC was a part of that?
