Next Gen iPhone and iPad to include NFC technology

With the rumour mill well and truly churning out more iPhone 5 and iPad 2 rumours by the day, the latest nugget of wonder is that both devices will feature NFC technology, and that this will be integrated into iTunes use aswell in the future.

So the basic concept will be that iTunes gift card balances, or the payment card that you have logged with iTunes will be used to make payments with a swipe of your iPhone 5 or iPad 2 with NFC compatible payment stations.

I’m sure this won’t be the last rumoured feature of these hotly anticipated offerings from Apple, but this could be one of the most interesting so far.
