Apple will revolutionize with iPhone 5 release

It looks like the Apple iPhone 5 release will not only come with 2011 industry standards such as a dual-core processor, but it’s also looking to revolutionize the smartphone for good with a fresh approach into RFID technology.

We spoke about this briefly in a previous report which you can read here, but now we have much more details on Apple’s intentions to include built-in support for RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) for the fifth generation iPhone.

A new article published over at Apple Insider talks about how Google has already established RFID technology on some of their Android smartphone, but Apple aims to go one further than Google by offering much more than just e-wallet payments at retailers.

If Apple has their way, 2011 could be the year in which users are able to take control of any other Mac computer by using ‘remote computing’ to change the settings so it essentially offers the same experience you would normally get with your Mac computer at home.

Their NFC / RFID features do not stop there either. Another idea would be to use the iPhone to bring up detailed information on a particular product you would be looking at whilst shopping. This would be information that wouldnt be listed at a retailer, and the iPhone data shown on screen could even include coupons and vouchers.

Some of you may be just be concerned about what new multimedia-related features the iPhone 5 may possess, but this information just goes to show that Apple are thinking way beyond that – we wouldn’t expect anything less from Steve Jobs and co. Will Apple shake up the industry with their intriguing RFID and NFC features for the iPhone 5? Let us know your thoughts on this.
