    (Almost) Any device that can do pay will have NFC - and it can only be used for that... for now...

    Not quite. The iPad Air 2 doesn't have an NFC chip so it can't do payments at a payment terminal at a retailer. However since it has the fingerprint reader, it can do in app ApplePay transactions.

    If I get annoyed to the point where I see people using iPads at the gym while working out, I'd probably outright punch a person using an iPad at a terminal for payment.

    Yes u are right about the finger print reader and apple pay
    But a Chinese company has found an NFC chip inside the new ipad air 2....
    But it cannot be used yet...
    I think apples gonna keep it for some time and one fine day they might activate it ( surprising us all, so they can brag abt their products again ) 😜

    It has the chip but not the radio . The nfc chip has the secure element used in Apple pay so you can use it on apps on the iPad

    Not only is the radio not present but neither are the NFC antennas.

    Ok. So it has an nfc chip, but you can't really do nfc-type things with it. So functionally, you can't use it at a retail terminal but it is accessible for use with ApplePay within an app.
