    The aluminum is milled on the inside. The pattern you are referring to is not a separate component, it is just the aluminum shell.

    There is another thread wondering the same thing. This seems to be located over the apple logo. Additionally, this seems to be the only rear shell pictured so far that has this section individually machined out. Mystery indeed....

    I see Tim Cook is really keeping things under wraps there.

    I was thinking the same. It seems like a lot more stuff has been leaked about this upcoming iPhone than the 4S.

    Although it'd be interesting if Apple surprised us with a completely different phone than the ones the leaks suggest exists

    Have you found any iPhones in bars lately? Ok then...

    Back on topic, the pattern you are seeing is from the milling, it's not a coil.

    It is weird that it's directly behind the apple logo. Too odd to be nothin.

    Well when the 4S looks exactly like the iPhone 4 people don't realize that's it's a new iPhone when those parts leak.

    I hope ... Size would be enough. We have smaller phone in Japan with NFC.

    And when not complete wrong it's on a similar position as the Logo on the backside. Which would make it a good target to place it on the reader.

    Two weeks more and we will know ...

    I'd like it to be NFC, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    It is NFC. Its the No Fat Chicks spring, when they get close it pushes them away.

    Nothing I've seen in the leaks indicates anything about a spring.

    What if it was behind the Apple logo, and any time you used it the logo would light up. That would be so cool.

    Just for the heck of it, it could be a LED lighting system, so that the apple logo lights up :) now wouldn't that be kind of neat... and slightly power consuming.

    Apple holds a patent on using NFC inside a metal enclosure.

    Oh, and it's a spiral antennae....

    Uh...NFC has stood for No Fat Chicks since the mid 1970s with bumper stickers on cars and motorcycles.

    LOL Knowledge is power.
