NFC in iPhone 6

For a very specific use, not for generic triggering (at least for now):

I want to use NFC for things other than paying for stuff

Apple has locked down the NFC chip in its phone so it can only be used for Apple Pay. If you want to use it for exchanging contacts, checking the fare on your transit card, or whatever else, you’re out of luck. No iPhone for you!
