Some secret work is being done on Apple Stores across the US, shrouded in typical occult Apple mystery. Nobody's sure what's about to be revealed, but BGR claims NFC gear is being hooked up - suggesting an NFC iPhone 5.
The details of the rumour are hardly details at all - BGR cites "new tables installed in stores that have different wiring compared to Apple's standard tables", and a claim that "Apple's POS devices - its iPod touch-based wireless payment terminals - recently all went offline for "maintenance" for an entire day" as evidence for an NFC iPhone. Not exactly a slam-dunk rumour by any means. [BGR]
