    The updates are going to be rolled out over the summer. There have no exact dates been anounced but rumours point to the rollout starting this month with higher end devices reaching lower end devices later. The Lumia 930 should also arrive in stores soon and will have the updated drivers from the get go.

    As for which phones contain the chip you mentioned I don't know if that information is available in a compiled form somewhere.

    I have just acquired a new Vodafone(NZ) Nokia 930 running 8.1 with all production updates .

    I can talk to the SIM by finding readers using SmartCardReader.GetDeviceSelector(SmartCardReaderKind.Uicc);

    However I cannot talk to the NFC reader; DeviceInformation.FindAllAsync(SmartCardReader.GetDeviceSelector(SmartCardReaderKind.Nfc)) returns an empty list.

    I have set Proximity as a capability, and NFC as a requirement. Is there anything else required to enable?

    I was under the impression that the 930 was the first of the new class of devices that would support generic ISO-DEP over NFC.

    Does the 930 not support ISO-DEP over NFC? Are there plans to fix this with an update?

    Short Answer: Yes and No.

    Windows Phone Supports it, but its up to OEMs to enable that at the driver level. Currently, as far as I know, there aren't any devices supporting it.

    You can find an official answer from Microsoft on this Thread:
