Reading the NFC Chip UID with an iPhone

It is possible to read an NFC Chip’s UID with a 3rd party iPhone app using Core NFC.

There is not a direct way to access the NFC chip UID on an iPhone using Background NFC Tag Reading, unless the UID is copied or mirrored into the NDEF message. However this is not a secure way to access the UID and the UID in the NDEF message could be spoofed.
