NFC tags for iOS

Dear friends,

Could it be possible that any of you may have NFC tags to offer? i mainly need two doing this for a learning purpose.

Moreover is it possible to develop two apps writer and reader each implemented on a device and upon NFC connection i can transmit data
note: Between two iPhones. Does Apple allow this?

Re: NFC tags for iOS

The scenario you describe should be possible. Both phones would need your app.
Check the documentation here: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/corenfc

Re: NFC tags for iOS

Thank you for your reply, I already implemented the Writer and the reader apps fro this purpose yet as per apple documentation you should use NFC tags exclusively.
Which means you buy a tag for example and put it on an item, you use your WRITE app to put the price of the item on the tag, then any customer can use his READ app to read the nfc data stored on this tag.
But this is not my purpose i want this to happen without the need of a tag and so far i cant read any related topic, all claiming that its impossible since apple will not let users develop such apps directly because they have their own Apple pay for example.

Yet i keep wondering how come all banks all around teh world have NFC payments apps.

Payment apps on iOS rely on Apple Pay APIs to work: https://developer.apple.com/documentati … /apple_pay
What you're trying to do is not possible on an iPhone using NFC.
