When the iPhone 5 was presented many were hoping that Apple would include the NFC chip in the device or even surprised us with the option of wireless charging as we know that Apple is experimenting with the technology. However, none of the two elements were present in the new smartphone from Apple and many critical voices accusing the Cupertino company to "fall behind".

Why Apple decided to dispense with the NFC chip and wireless charging in the iPhone 5? According to statements by Phil Schiller, vice president of the company, both technologies are "still in diapers" and considered that Apple were not prepared to make the leap to the iPhone. For Schiller, the new native application for iOS 6, Passbook, "is the option that consumers seek and use today."

Do you think Apple made a mistake by not introducing these elements into the iPhone 5 or conversely you agree with the opinion of Phil Schiller?
