Reuters reports that Apple has proposed making the iPhone’s NFC chip available in Europe.

It is expected that this will allow competitors to use their own payment systems instead of Apple Pay. Previously, banks complained that NFC in iPhones is used only for Apple Pay, and this is discrimination against other payment systems.

Thus, the company wants to avoid public claims from the EU against the Apple Pay system. The publication’s sources note that the European Commission will most likely seek the opinions of competitors and customers before deciding on Apple’s interesting proposals.

This isn’t the first time Apple has faced criticism for limiting access to NFC on the iPhone. Australian banks wanted access to NFC in 2017 to enable an alternative to Apple Pay, but they were unsuccessful.
