Where to scan

iPhone Tips

On an iPhone, the NFC reader is located in the very top center of the phone, right behind the front-facing camera. The tag will scan from the frontside or backside of phone.

NFC is always on, starting at the iPhone XR and newer (2018)

The phone must be unlocked to scan, sometimes the always-on display of newer iPhones is deceiving, make sure the user unlocks phone otherwise it will not scan.

Where to Scan

Android Tips

Most Androids scan from the center-backside of the phone.

NFC can be toggled on/off in settings so be sure your NFC is turned on. This will be in settings next to bluetooth and wifi.
