Isis Arrives On iPhone with Incipio Cashwrap Case
AT&T and Incipio today announced the availability of the Cashwrap, a case for the iPhone that includes a secure NFC chip and can be used to make mobile payments via Isis. The case is compatible with the iPhone 4/4S and 5/5s. It must be used with the Isis application, which can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store. Customers register a credit card with the app/service and can then use their iPhone for tap-and-go payments at participating retailers. The case is available from AT&T's web site beginning today, and should reach most AT&T stores January 31. The case comes in black, pink, or white and costs $69. Isis is a joint venture backed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. It launched in November and already works with a handful of Android smartphones that have NFC embedded inside. The Cashwrap case from Incipio is necessary for the iPhone because it does not have NFC.
