CoreNFC-API, has Apple silently opened NFC for the rest of us?

    Spotted CoreNFC as one of the new APIs for iOS11:
    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/corenfc

    [...]Using Core NFC, you can read Near Field Communication (NFC) tags of types 1 through 5 that contain data in the NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF).[...]

    It seems that we finally get access to the NFC-reader on compatible devices directly.

    Anyone insights or details on that, as this would be really great news?

    Hmm just iPhone 7 and 7+.
    And only NFC ndef what ever those are.
    Would be nice.
    But if it's read only and not communicate you can't open doors etc.

    Seems like it! Looking forward to this.
