        I have been trying to google around a lot for this, but unable to find anything. Is there any plan for Apple to open up SDK for NFC and allow developers to use NFC tags?

          Apple tends to not discuss future plans, etc. Feel free to file a feature request via bug reporter and good luck.

            Did you ever find a solution on NFC tags? I have a similar need but as far as I can figure there is no way to read an NFC tag from an iPhone? Is there another low cost tag solution?

                I can’t speak for vverma93 but, speaking from an Apple perspective:

                • There is no NFC API in the iOS SDK

                • Apple folks can’t comment about The Future™

                There may be interesting third-party options out there but it’s not something I’ve looked into myself so I don’t have any pointers for you )-:
