Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5 has entered trial production, according to people familiar with the matter, with a handful of tweaks, including a metal case and mobile-payment technology.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based company’s iPhone 5 is scheduled for release in the third quarter, these sources said, which aligns with its traditional June or July release date. According to people with knowledge of the inside of the new iPhone — Qualcomm’s processor chip will include NFC, or near-field communication, allowing users to pay for goods and services by tapping their phone on a payment terminal.

One person familiar with the Apple NFC venture said the iPhone’s credit card information would be tied to iTunes, which would make it easy for customers to setup the service.
