By expanding the use of the NFC chip, Apple reportedly wants to expand the use of iPhones in contactless interactions, something that may even make the device works as a hotel key door or virtual transit card for easier access.
The bending issues with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus date back to shortly after the phones' release in September 2014.
Currently, while the iPhone does support NFC, there are more than a few limitations. It's the latest bit of news suggesting that Apple isn't making its own auto and will instead build the technology that will power vehicles made by other companies.
At the time, Apple downplayed the rumours, stating that out of all the iPhone 6 units in the wild and in pockets, only nine people have complained about curvature of the handset.

"One of the major concerns Apple identified prior to launching the iPhones was that they were "likely to bend more easily when compared to previous generations" something that Apple described as "expected behaviour". The problems-which included touchscreens with a flickering gray bar at the top, touchscreens with intermittent response, and touchscreens that stopped working completely-were collectively dubbed "Touch Disease".
The details made public from these court documents show Apple did indeed know that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were more likely to bend than earlier iPhone models, despite the company denying any engineering issues with the smartphones. Ultimately, Apple (after several months) chose to offer a fix program, but the kicker was it cost customers $149.
Soon after "Bendgate", reports emerged that the iPhone 6 was suffering from "touch disease", an issue that occurs when the phone's touchscreen fails due to its touch-controller chip malfunctioning.
"As with any Apple product, if you have questions please contact Apple". So far, users have only been able to use NFC for Apple Pay, the company's mobile payments system. Apple isn't commenting as you'd expect, but it certainly isn't looking good for the company right now.
