Apple iPhones Soon to be Opening Doors

Open a presumably locked door with your smart phone? explains how Apple will soon be making that possible via the upcoming release of a new iPhone 11.

“It has been nearly a decade since HID Global launched a pilot program to validate how mobile access control using Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled smartphones can enable employees to open doors using a mobile device without compromising an enterprise’s physical security.

“But progress – as it often is in the security industry – creeped along at a decidedly measured pace among manufacturers, mainly because only one major smartphone providers truly supported NFC in the first place.

“More than eight years after HID’s first pilot programs were completed, the pace of innovation is poised to be turbo-charged, as Apple has announced it will finally support NFC natively with the release of the new iPhone 11.”

Oh, the security magic of our times!
