Apple Rumour Suggests Phone NFC Can Soon Unlock Hotel Doors

Disney recently announced "The Digital Key", but with this upcoming Apple rumour, it may actually be more useful than MagicBands.


Disney announced back in April that they will be introducing the "digital key", which allows you to enter your Disney World resort hotel room using the My Disney Experience app. It now in the early testing phase.

An Apple rumour that has surfaced that says iOS12 (to be released later this year) will expand the NFC capabilities beyond payments (Apple Pay). The Information reports it will allow the NFC chip to securely unlock doors equipped with the technology.

It seems what I speculated on my "Is the MagicBand coming to an end?" article may see come to fruition.

MagicBands are equipped with NFC chips, the same chips that are in most modern smartphones. So instead of going into the My Disney Experience app, you'll be able to touch your phone to your door to open it.
