NFC comes to the iPhone with brand new line of cases

iPhone Isis NFC Case Launch

DeviceFidelity on Monday announced that even more special iPhone cases containing its near field communication (NFC) technology for Isis payments will be available in AT&T stores beginning January 31st. The Incipio Cashwrap case was already leaked last week, and was officially announced on Friday, after being demoed at CES 2014. On top of that case — which has support for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s and will be available in multiple colors for $69 — AT&T will also stock various other models including the Isis Ready Case ($65), the Isis Ready Charging Case that also packs an extended battery ($85), and the rugged Otterbox Defender Series Mobile Wallet Case ($129).

Each case has its own NFC chip and secure element, and users will need to download the Isis Mobile Wallet iOS app to actually be able to pay wirelessly using the smartphone. The company says that the iPhone platform is the “world’s first NFC platform to be fully certified for iOS devices by Isis and major payment brands including Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover.” However, not all case models will work with all iPhone versions available in stores.

“DeviceFidelity’s technology and software will now make it possible for iPhone users to tap to pay with the Isis Mobile Wallet ,” DeviceFidelity Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder Amitaabh Malhotra. “Enabling the Isis Mobile Wallet on iPhone is the next step in ensuring safer, more secure transactions, in the hands of all consumers nationwide. Bringing this service to iPhone users is a huge step in the right direction.”
