Apple shunned NFC on purpose. Probably not a good idea in many regards. But they did so because they're trying to incorporate their own similar system. Called Passbook. They're trying to do the same things as NFC, but with classic Apple Nazi control. It looks slick for what it's supposed to do, but the fact that they gave NFC the finger and are trying their own version will probably result in slower adoption of the technology as a whole.

Here's what an expert had to say:

The thing to remember is that Apple has never felt the need to rush to be first. It came late to the MP3 market, the phone market and the tablet market, and it now dominates all of them. The company is more interested in developing a complete solution that will immediately deliver a great deal of value to users. I see Passbook evolving over time and eventually incorporating NFC, so while I plan to upgrade my iPhone 4S to an iPhone 5, I will eagerly wait to see if the iPhone 6 includes NFC functionality.
