This article demonstrates how to use iOS's built-in NFC reader (made available to 3rd party applications in iOS 11) with Cloud-In-Hand® Mobile Grid. While the native NFC reader is used in absence of an RFID/NFC reader, such as the idChamp RS3, it's important to note that there are some limitations to the native iOS NFC reader; it can only read the NDEF data stored on the NFC tag and it cannot write any data to the NFC tag. For more functionality, such as reading various data stores of the RFID/NFC tag and writing to RFID/NFC tags, we recommend the idChamp RS4. To learn more about…
