There has also, can phones read RFID?
NFC enabled phones can ONLY read NFC and passive high frequency RFID (HF-RFID). These must be read at an extremely close range, typically a few centimeters. For longer range or any other type of RFID/active RFID, you must use an external reader for handling them with mobile devices.
Over and above that, what can you do with an RFID reader? RFID uses radio waves produced by a reader to detect the presence of (then read the data stored on) an RFID tag. Tags are embedded in small items like cards, buttons, or tiny capsules. These readers also use radio waves in some systems to write new information to the tags.
Additional, can any RFID reader read any tag?
In most instances, each type of passive RFID tag (LF, HF, or UHF) can only be read by the SAME type of passive RFID reader. For instance, usually an LF reader will only be able to read an LF tag; it will not able to read an HF or a UHF tag.
What is RFID reader?
What is an RFID Reader? An RFID reader is the brain of the RFID system and is necessary for any system to function. Readers, also called interrogators, are devices that transmit and receive radio waves in order to communicate with RFID tags.

Although iPhones have NFC hardware, the iOS APIs do not allow the access to this NFC hardware that is needed to read the contactless (RFID) chips embedded in passports and similar ICAO 9303 compliant identity documents. This in contrast to Android, which for many years already allows this.
The main difference to RFID is that a NFC device can act not only as a reader, but also as a tag (card emulation mode). In peer-to-peer mode, it is also possible to transfer information between two NFC devices. NFC systems operate on the same frequency as HF RFID (13.56 MHz) systems.
Currently, the frequencies for RFID connections are in the following ranges: 125 – 134.2 KHz, 13.56 MHz, 856 – 960 MHz and 2.45 GHz. ... Hence, the 5G paradigm which is a unified network for RFID communication will be idea for enabling robust and reliable RFID communications across all the frequencies.
The most common RFID applications in hospitals are inventory tracking, control access, staff and patients tracking, tracking tools, tracking disposable consumables, tracking large/expensive equipment, laundry tracking, etc.
