  1. I noticed only NFC Tools was able to read my ID card only while the other apps wasn’t able to detect it.

  2. I thought the NFC reader on the iPhone was directly in the back middle of the phone but it’s actually on top right on where the camera is at.

  3. Hi, I was wondering, in order to write such informations as shortcut etc, do you think a type 213 would be enough or do I need to aim for bigger amount of informations holding tags like the 215 or 216?

  4. you don't show the wifi tag in action. I can't get it to work on my XS running latest OS after writing using the app you used. The XS accepts social links, urls, etc. Not Wifi. Any help??

  5. i have an nfc card, but it can't be read by my iphone even though that card could be read by my acr122U reader. I understand that only NDEF Tags can be read by iphones, how can i know my tags are NDEF encoded?

  6. Hello, I followed your instructions to add a record for access to wifi but it doesn’t work iphone cannot recognize the tag only android. I searched this on the net and I think that iPhone cannot recognize wifi access, contacts, notes, messages… androids no problem everything works fine! Can you find a solution?

  7. I have been watching MacMost now for as long as they have been on (even now that they are on Patreon). I think that MacMost is the best instructional podcast on the internet. I have learn more from these podcast than from any other. Thank you Gary and keep up the excellent work. Have a great holiday!!

  8. Hi Macmost. I dont see the NFC in the new automation of mu shortcut. I am using Iphone X. Is there other setting that i need to activate to see it? Thank you. Great vids by the way.

  9. I drive a convertible sometimes and I don’t want a garage door opener in the car risking it being stolen so I invested in a garage door opener from Best Buy that works with HomeKit and then put a NFC tag in the car to open and close the garage when I put my phone to it! Pretty handy I must say!

  10. Great video. Just a point of clarification (although if I’m wrong, please correct me).

    The iPhone XR/XS (and newer) have background scanning (i.e. the ability for the phone to respond to an NFC tag without opening any specific app. You just need to bring your phone close to the tag.)

    Older iPhones (including the iPhone X) do not have NFC tag background scanning and an NFC scanning app needs to be opened and a user needs to physically scan a tag for anything to happen.

  11. I have long wished the iPhone had a simple 1 or 2 tap way to divert calls to voicemail. After watching this I thought that would be a fantastic way to do it but looking through the automations there does not seem to be many involving the settings 😫 Maybe they will improve the shortcuts over time

  12. I’m afraid that iPhone X and below it, can only read the NFC tag only if you trigger the ‘nfc reading mode’ first. But iPhone Xr and above will be able to read the tag by simply tapping to the nfc like in your video. Cmiiw

  13. Tnx 4 amazing tutorial again,
    Gary one question,
    My door 🚪 unlock with NFC and password,
    Can I set my NFC tag to my iphone and open my door with my phone instead of using the NFC tag?
    Or set my other tag to my phone?

  14. Just a sidenote: if you place the tags on metal surfaces or on devices not shielded from interference, your phone probably won’t be able to scan them.

  15. Oh my, so much potential!!! I didn’t even know something like that was remotely possible! And so easy to do thanks to Shortcuts, I wonder why it’s not common knowledge already?
    Many thanks for this video!
