According to the reports, the Cupertino giant is right now planning to add new peculiarities to the forthcoming version of the Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 12. The elite class smartphone Apple is making a significant change to its wireless chip in the iPhone. This chip will, in turn, allow the users to more securely unlock doors enabled with the same technology.

The change to the near-field communication, or NFC, the chip could cover the way for people to use iPhones for other security-sensitive interactions. This will happen from paying transition charges and opening car doors to verifying their identity in other ways. The announcement of the same is expected to be announced next month. 

With this upgradation, the Apple company wants to expand the use of iPhones in contactless interactions. Also, this chip may even benefit as a hotel key door or virtual transition card for easier access.
