Hi all

I have scanned the board briefly but have not found reference to these recent Apple patents.

Please consider the following link

Apple introduces us to an NFC-iPhone that will include a built-in scanner, biometric sensor, added camera functionality and a secondary fingerprint scanner for verifying a user's identity to retailers

There is a lot in this patent and it can also be read in conjunction with this one.

There is also another patent that uses the same NFC technology to enable person to person transfers of funds but I cannot find the link
