Apple have released the ability to scan NFC tags in IOS 11 and iphone 7 onwards.  


We have managed to reach the stage of implementing a skeleton app to scan NFC tags on a iPhone 7+ so we know for sure it works. Seems like early days for Core NFC, but after working with NFC for 6 years it is so nice to see that it has finally arrived.


Apple have a very different approach to Android in that you have to have an app , the app has to be in foreground and you have to actively say in the app you want to scan a tag!
