All four of the new iPhones launched on 7 September 2022 come with NFC.
The specs reveal the devices – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – have “NFC with reader mode” along with as “ultra wideband chip for spatial awareness,” with the caveat that ultra wideband availability varies by region.
The devices all also support Apple’s Express Cards with Power Reserve feature, which allows transit tickets to be used and payments to be made via NFC even when the phone is off.
