The updated Apple Pay will also feature Lower NFC Power Mode Feature, which will enable management of NFC features by using low power modes of an electronic device such as an iPhone. This feature allows portable electronic devices to be provided with NFC components for enabling contactless proximity-based communications with another entity.

Due to the limited amount of power available to battery-operated devices, the NFC functionalities of such devices are often compromised or rendered unusable when their available power drops below certain thresholds.
