In another article this series, we went over the general feature of mobile unlocks and reviewed the landscape of mobile apps for access control, with the various features and functionalities you might find. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the world of iOS and explore how mobile unlocking works on an iOS app, along with the various particularities of Apple iPhones.

If you just want a quick overview, here is a video from Kisi TV that outlines what we'll be discussing:

How does Bluetooth work on an iPhone?

iPhones, like all modern smartphones, come equipped with a standard Bluetooth chip. These chips emit signals in the radio wave range and turn your iPhone into a sort of RFID emitter. For a more in-depth explanation of Bluetooth technology, please visit this article. Specifically, iPhones have chips that adhere to the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) standard—the phone loses nothing in functionality while conserving more battery. Here you’ll find a picture of your typical smartphone Bluetooth chip—note that those distances are in centimeters, not inches!

iBeacon Technology

Around 2013, Apple developed a new standard for BLE technology that it named the iBeacon. The iBeacon protocol sets definitions on how iPhone BLE chips should be manufactured.

Among other things, the iBeacon decreases power consumption, increases strength of Bluetooth connection between iPhones and increases the accuracy of an iPhone’s indoor location tracking (a feature that GPS famously struggles with). Think about how many times Google or Apple maps lost track of your position when you were in a building! Modern access control apps utilize this iBeacon tech to its full extent through leveraging the more precise positioning it permits.

Mobile Tap to Unlock With Bluetooth

From years of being in the business, and common sense, we know that the easiest use-case for unlocking your door with your phone is to simply tap it to the reader (much as you would a keycard). No need to fumble around your wallet, or dig around in your backpack: Odds are your phone is already in your hand, anyway.

It would seem obvious that in iPhones, logic would point us to using the iBeacon BLE chip to unlock your doors; and that’s exactly what most modern access control iOS apps do. With features like mobile tap to unlock, you can simply tap your phone to the reader, or hold it in its vicinity and, thanks to the location precision afforded by the iBeacon chip, the reader will be able to receive the signal and pinpoint whether the particular iPhone is in range, and then authenticate it using the ID information transmitted by the BLE chip.

Bluetooth interference?

As you can imagine, access control is not the only application on your phone that will use the Bluetooth chip. There are probably a dozen devices in whatever room you’re in right now that are all trying to ping your Bluetooth chip for a signal. So, the question of whether they might interfere with each other and cross wires is a natural one.

We’ve covered the issue of BLE interference more in depth, and explained the science behind it, in another article in this series. Please refer to that for a deeper dive. However, for the purposes of access control, you can rest assured that there will be no crossing of wires, or mis-transmission of information. The reader uses Bluetooth fencing (more on that later in this article) to only communicate with your device when it’s close enough to transmit information clearly and fully, without loss or corruption of information.

What about the NFC chip?

We commonly get questions from iPhone users about why they can’t use the NFC chip to unlock their doors. As we covered in this article, NFC tap to unlock is faster and more reliable, despite the fact that its range is more limited; and, like all modern smartphones, the iPhone comes equipped with an NFC chip. So, why shouldn’t you be able to use your iPhone as an RFID/NFC card?

The answer here is deceptively simple: Apple is proprietary with their tech, and don’t let third-party applications use the NFC chip for transmitting. They do allow developers to read a (very restricted) subset of NFC tags from outside objects, but the application process for the use of this chip is long and unnecessarily complicated. Most of the time, these applications are not considered and widespread use of the NFC chip remains restricted to one functionality: Apple Pay.

iPhones and Access Control

In this section, we’ll take a closer look at the particularities of iPhones in the world of access control, and how they’re different from Android-based unlocks.

In-App Unlock vs Tap To Unlock

There will be two main methods for unlocking with most iOS access control apps: Tap-to-unlock, where you hold your phone to the reader (covered above), and in-app unlocks. For the latter, the interface will depend on the specific app you’re using, but generally you’ll have something like a list of all your doors neatly organized on the screen and you can scroll to each and unlock it using a combination of WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

BLE Beacon Fence vs Tap to Unlock BLE Range

Many applications will actually limit the distance at which a device can perform an unlock. This range, however, will be different for the in-app unlocks and the tap to unlocks, despite the fact that both use Bluetooth connections.

Bluetooth transmitters can establish a sort of geofence around them where their signal reaches. For BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) devices, this is limited to around 50 meters, but can be artificially reduced by programming it to a shorter distance.

For in-app unlocks, the reader will continually transmit a signal and as soon as it picks up another Bluetooth chip it will establish a weak communication with it just to determine its approximate distance. If it judges the device to be within the accepted range, then it will allow certain functions to be performed, namely unlocking the door.

As an admin for a Kisi ‘place’, you can activate a Bluetooth fence on the reader. It will use its Bluetooth Beacon capabilities to only allow devices within a preset Bluetooth range to use the swipe to unlock functionality.

A similar process is used for tap to unlock, but here it’s actually set by Kisi for security and strength of connection reasons. Kisi (and other similar apps) will set a maximum range on the tap to unlock, in order to prevent accidental unlocks or unwanted strangers piggybacking on nearby BLE signals, in order to gain access to the building.

Wearables—BLE in the Apple Watch

The market for wearables is booming, and it’s rare these days to have a modern office without at least one Apple Watch in it. As a result, many access control companies are starting to integrate with these wearable techs and develop solutions to deploy their apps in the different interface.

For instance, with Kisi in particular, you can receive a notification to unlock from within your Apple Watch and swipe its screen to unlock your door. With the spread of wearables into the Internet of Things market, it’s a safe bet that we’ll see a lot more access control in Apple Watches in the near future!

Closing Thoughts

Using BLE and iBeacon technology, Apple has given access control apps the tools to develop a versatile and powerful suite of tools to secure your space. With both tap to unlock and in-app swipe to unlock functionalities in iOS, apps like Kisi are changing the way you access and secure your space.

How To Unlock Your Door By Using Your iPhone As Your NFC Key Card

How To Unlock Your Door By Using Your iPhone As Your NFC Key Card

With future beta releases of iOS 11, many are hoping that Apple will relax its tight grip over NFC use, and while there’s a rumor that it may do that by granting access to third-party developers, it may not. So if you want to make further use of your iPhone, we’re going to show you how to use it as an NFC Key Card.

iOS device as an NFC key card

If the possibility of using your NFC for more than paying with Apple Pay sounds ridiculous or unbelievable, believe us when we say that it isn’t; however, there are some requirements to make it possible. Thankfully, one is not waiting for Apple to make it possible, as there are many developers working to do so.

You need an iPhone 6 or newer, which currently includes the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus. However, the iPhone must be jailbroken and running iOS 10. You also need the NFCWriter tweak installed. From there, you are ready to take advantage of something those without a jailbreak can not.

What is NFCWriter?

As previously mentioned, iOS devices are not capable of using NFC to its full potential. NFCWriter simply unlocks the NFC chip, which makes this tweak a must-have if you are partial to forgetting your NFC key cards. You will now be able to program your device to act as a replacement and much more.

Interested in finding out more? You must first purchase NFCWriter from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $3.99. Then you will be ready to follow the guide below; as always, if you have doubts, please ask. Or alternatively, do some further research before following the steps below. Either way, when you do free your NFC chip, you won’t regret it.

How to use your iOS device as an NFC key card

While this guide is a simple one, it is advised that you read and then act upon each step individually. This approach has been proven to be the most effective at reducing mistakes from happening.

1. With your jailbroken iPhone ready and NFCWriter installed on it, scan your NFC access card.

2. Next, you will be required to jot down the existing card’s serial number. You will need it for the following step.

3. Enter that serial number into NFCWriter’s Tag Emulation area.

4. When the serial number has been entered, select Start Tag Emulation, and that’s it. Should you ever find yourself without your work access card again, you can use your iPhone.

However, we advise that you ask for permission from your boss or whoever is responsible for securing staff access to the building. You wouldn’t want to get into any kind of trouble if something goes wrong.

NFC Tools can read and write NFC tags.

NFC Tools can read and write your NFC tags with a simple and lightweight user interface.
By passing your device near an NFC chip, you can read the data it contains and interact with the content.

The "Read" section allows you to see data such as:
- the maker of the tag
- the type of tag (ex : Mifare Ultralight, NTAG213)
- the norm of the tag (ex : NFC Forum Type 2)
- the available technology (ex: NFC A)
- its serial number (ex : 04:85:c8:5a:40:2b:80)
- the size of the tag and of the data on it
- if you can write on the tag
- all the data on the tag (NDEF format)

NFC Tools can record standard information on your tags which will be compatible with any NFC device.
For instance, you can store a VCARD to share your contact details easily, open an URL, share a phone number or even a geolocation.

The "Write" section let you record standardised data such as:
- a simple text
- a link to a website
- an email
- a contact
- a phone number
- a predefined text message
- an address or geolocation
- a WiFi or Bluetooth configuration
- personalised data
- and more...

The write function allows you to add as much data as you wish.
This way you can record large quantities of information on your tag.

The app also allows you to save the contents of your chip for later access.

NFC Tools has been tested with the following NFC tags:
- NTAG 203, 210, 210u, 212, 213, 213TT, 215, 216, 413 DNA, 424 DNA

Went on the App Store for about an hour and this seems to be the only one that tells me everything about the NFC chip as well as formatting and locking it with a password. Only problem I have is it doesn’t let me pair with my Sennheiser 4.40 BT headphones. That however I’m sure is an Apple issue because I’ve looked on Apple’s manual for NFC online and there doesn’t seem to be any documentation for pairing

Simply the best

There is no other app out there with this perfect mixture of easy to understand UI, and data richness. I use NFC data tags for automation all the time and this is THE go to app! Additionally, the developers 100% deserve the funds provided for the pro upgrade and the upgrade itself is well worth the price! This app is fantastic, simply the best!

Thanks a lot :)

Reads and writes!

It actually works, I use these at work, I copy the work nfc tags and write them on my own tags, to make things simpler. All it needs is a folder feature to organize different saved tags.

  1. RFID wallets that do not include an RFID scanner and are part of a generic wallet brand may be less expensive, but they are often not worth the money. The RFID scanner in these wallets is very expensive and the transponders and readers must be made of very specific materials.

How to Scan NFC (iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X)

How To Use NFC On iPhone

Apple Pay on iPhoneThe iPhone has been equipped with a NFC chip for some time now. All newer iPhone models since the iPhone 6 feature the Near Field Communication technology, allowing e.g. cashless and contactless payments via Apple Pay. Nevertheless, very few users know how this short-range radio standard works and how to use it. We show you what you need to know about NFC and how to use it on your iPhone.


What is NFC?

NFC is one of those terms that Apple brings up with every new iPhone. Yet, many users still have no clue what it means and how to use it. Nevertheless, the functionality can be explained quickly: NFC is a radio technology that enables data to be transmitted between devices over a short distance – a maximum of 1,6 in – and is therefore similar to the well-known Bluetooth technology. Since the successful exchange of data requires the immediate proximity of transmitter and receiver, NFC is particularly secure because it’s more difficult to spy out the device.

However, with NFC, only small amounts of data written on electronic tags (so called NFC tags) that are attached to physical objects can be transferred. There are NFC tags, for example, in the form of small stickers that contain an NFC chip that can be described with various information. This could be, for example, product information on specific products in the supermarket or information on exhibits in the museum.

Which iPhones are NFC-enabled?

Although the first NFC-enabled smartphones were released in 2008, Apple only started to equip all newer iPhone models with an NFC module since the iPhone 6. Accordingly, the following iPhone models feature an NFC chip:

How to use NFC on the iPhone

Depending on the iPhone model, there are different ways to use the NFC function. Starting with iOS 14, the “NFC Tag Reader” function is available by default to all users who have at least an iPhone 7. So if you own an iPhone 7 or newer, you no longer need a third-party app to read NFC tags. You can turn this feature on by tapping the NFC button in the control center and hold your iPhone near an NFC tag to trigger an action.

Activate NFC Tag Reader in the Control Center

If the button is not visible on your screen, you may need to add it to the Control Center. Proceed as follows:

  1. First open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Then select the option “Control Center”.
  3. Scroll down and tap the green plus button to the left of “NFC Tag Reader”.

Add NFC Tag Reader to the iPhone Control Center

The iPhone XS (Max), iPhone XR, iPhone 11 as well as iPhone 11 Pro (Max) and iPhone SE (2nd gen.) models, on the other hand, feature the so-called “Background Tag Reading” function. NFC tags can thus be read automatically as soon as the iPhone screen is switched on without having to start the NFC Tag Reader first. The iPhone then looks for corresponding signals in the background. When a tag is detected, a notification appears on the display, prompting the user to open the item in the respective NFC app.

Open scanned item in NFC reader app on iPhone

By the way: Since iOS 13 and from iPhone 7 on, it is no longer only possible to read NFC tags, but also to write them using an NFC app. Within such an app, tags can also be written by the user and linked to actions (more on this below).

How to create a Shortcuts automation via NFC?

Starting with iOS 13, you can create so-called “automations” via the Shortcut app on the iPhone and trigger them through a NFC tag. So for the first time you can label and execute NFC tags with your own actions – e.g. playing a song or starting HomeKit scenes – as soon as you hold the iPhone to the tag.

The whole thing works exclusively on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR as well as iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max. Older iPhone models do not support NFC-based automation. By the way, you can buy the necessary tags in the form of adhesive stickers with an integrated NFC chip at Amazon for little money.

NFC Sticker

This sounds complicated at first, but in principle it is child’s play. Open the pre-installed Shortcuts app on your iPhone and go to the tab “Automation” at the bottom. Then tap the plus button in the upper right corner and go to “Create Personal Automation”.

Tap on "Create Personal Automation" in the Shortcuts app

Scroll down and select “NFC” as the trigger for your (not yet created) automation. Then press the “Scan” button and hold your iPhone to the NFC sticker.

After you named the NFC tag, tap on “Next” in the upper right corner. Now you can assign an action to the sticker by tapping on “Add Action”. Then select an action from the categories or suggestions to start when you hold the iPhone to the sticker. For example, you can start a call, send a message, or play a song.

Tap on "Add Action" in the Shortcuts app

Confirm your choice with a tap on “Done” in the upper right corner and you have created your first NFC-supported automation. You can now place an NFC sticker anywhere you frequently use your iPhone – such as the office, bedroom, car, or front door – and label it and perform actions by holding your iPhone near the tag.

How to use an iPhone NFC reader app?

If you don’t have an iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max to label and read NFC tags in the Shortcut app, you will need an NFC Reader app. For example, you can download the free NFC for iPhone app from the App Store. Starting with iOS 13, this app supports reading and labeling NFC tags on all iPhone models starting with iPhone 7. Older models – such as the iPhone 6s – don’t support reading and labeling NFC tags with the app, by the way.
