How to use Express Transit to quickly pay for rides via Apple Pay on iPhone and Apple Watch

Thanks to the Express Transit feature that's available through Apple Pay, you can hop on the tube, buses, trams, light rail and overground rail in major cities and pay for your public transit journeys just by holding your iPhone or Apple Watch close to the contactless NFC terminal, no need to press any buttons or verify with Face ID, Touch ID or a passcode whatsoever.

NFCWriter X lets hobbyists and tinkerers unlock the iPhone’s full NFC potential

Just over a year ago, iOS developer Elias Limneos announced a ground-breaking jailbreak tweak called NFCWriter that enabled iPhone users to tap into the full potential of the NFC (Near Field Communication) chip embedded within their handset. This week, Limneos continues that fun with NFCWriter X for iOS, which can only be described as the latest iteration of the tweak.

NFCWriter X for iOS is intended for advanced users and tinkerers with an interest in playing around with NFC tags, Credit/Debit Cards, MRTD documents, and more directly from your iPhone. Nearly anything with NFC support can be tinkered with by NFCWriter X for iOS.
