iPhone 5 will bring a new feature, remote computing, based on NFC (Near Field Communication) technology according to an exclusive post on Cult of Mac.
NFC technology is already being used in Asia and Apple has been rumored to use the same technology in the upcoming iPhone model. If Apple adopts NFC, many new applications will also be coming with iPhone 5 like e-wallet. But the source says Apple is working to find a way to use the NFC for remote computing too.
With this remote computing feature iPhone 5 users will be able to carry the data from one gadget to another like they can store the data and settings from a Mac machine and load the same settings and data on other compatible MacBook.
“When a person walks away with their iPhone and away from the communication link with the Mac, the original settings of the Mac would be restored. All communications and storage of passwords stays on the user’s iPhone, leaving nothing stored on the computer.
“This functionality is extended to access a user’s home folder, which will be stored and accessed either through storage on MobileMe or by using the Back to My Mac feature to connect to the user’s home folder.”
If all this is true, iPhone 5 will bring some interesting features and once again Apple will prove itself a top and leading company in IT industry.
