I recently installed a NExT in my right hand. The implant can be read and written with my Samsung S10+ and the keyboard reader without issue. However, I can’t read or write the tag from an iPhone 7 w/ app or an iPhone XS with or w/o app. It is almost as if it’s not in my hand when I scan with an iPhone. I have tried every orientation and spot even near where it is. I cannot see or feel where the actual implant is but I can tell because of the Samsung.
Edit: There is no case on the iPhones, but a case on the Samsung. I have tried rubbing the top edge of my iPhone all over the area from every different angle imaginable.
Conveniently, same spot for all iPhone models - all placed with the idea of Apple Pay - you hold your phone as you normally would and present the top edge of the phone to the terminal to pay.
How recently did you install the NExT? Swelling can take a number of days to go down before you get consistent reads. You should be positioning the iPhone with the top edge making a cross with the implant, as if you were ‘cutting’ it with the phone.
Hmm the only thing left is position. You know how you kind of tap the too edge of the iphone to a payment terminal like you’re tapping the tip of a magic wand? Well when it comes to implants you want to stab the top edge of the phone directly down on the implant like you’re cutting it in half… the length of the implant should be perpendicular to the width edge of the top edge of the phone.
Mate, I really dislike A LOT of things about apple , but even though their tech is at least 2 years behind EVERYBODY else, it still does work.
If it was the spark original or xSLX I would understand.
Can you confirm It works with apple pay (should work easily with an active reader)
What App are you using? (sorry if I missed it above)
Have you tried TagInfo by NXP (the people that make the chips, so probably your best bet)
Also NFCTools might be worth a try
Also, have you read through this? there may be some more clues /hints for you to try
@Pilgrimsmaster why you make me defend them… I don’t want too… But… Apple ain’t bad from a tech standpoint. Like at the last 1 or 2 launches there processors have been market leading. There camara tech is in the upper echelons. There software update timeframe is by far the best… They just have certain stances as a company and make implementation choices that I dislike. But from a tech standpoint there… Fairly reasonable…
Brb got to go clean my keyboard with soap, feels dirty now.
