That is annoying for standards buffs, but Apple has gone their own way on many such technologies. They haven't gone the standards route with micro-USB, DLNA, Miracast, or much of anything, really.

I don't expect them to adopt NFC any time soon. They have their own ways to do everything NFC does, and owning a good chunk of the payments pie is too tempting for Apple to not try to do (and own, and take a cut of) their own solution.
