Pairing and read/write to a NFC chip

Hi,
I’m building an iOS app that will read from and write to NFC chips once scanned. I have the chip reader hardware but I don’t know the structure of reading and writing to the chip. My plan is to use mergBLM to pair the reader hardware to the app. I could use some help with that too. Maybe Monte could chime in on that part. Thanks in advance.

NFC only works on Android, Apple does not allow it for anything except its own Apple Pay.

However I've seen that they will consider allowing third-party apps to implement NFC later this year so watch for announcements, probably in the fall.

Edit: LC's current implementation does not include writing to the tag, only reading. You could put in a feature request for that.

Also, BLE is for Bluetooth which is different from NFC. Which one do you mean?

Hi Jacqueline,
The chip reader I have is bluetooth hence the need for mergBLE to pair. Yep, I saw the announcement that iSO 11 would support NFC.

I have an iPhone app that allows me to read/write to NFC chips thru the reader but I wanted to make some improvements. Just need to do some reverse engineering. I have UI working on my new app but missing the read/write and pairing parts. Thanks for the reply.
