The front panel of iPhone 5 that was assembled to show the internals appear to include an NFC sensor, reports Macotakara. At first, people were unable to speculate about that gap beside iSight camera and flex-cable.

Apple introduced Passbook in iOS 6 which is set for release this fall and so Apple’s long rumored iPhone 5. Since Passbook is incomplete without an NFC sensor that would sense and add those NFC tags inside your Passbook application. We had been hearing that there were lots of discussions happened between Apple employees either to include mobile payments capability in iOS 6 or let it go due to the complexities. Perhaps, Apple might have found out a proper solution to these issues.
