IOS 11 and Beacon NFC Support

I read that IOS 11 comes with a support for NFC. Proximity beacons also come with NFC tags. Is it possible to implement beacon touch events from IOS device which contains IOS 11 ?? Something like if user touches his device to a beacon, can we open up our app??

Link I referred for Android :

Can the same thing be done with Iphones as well if it has IOS 11 or greater??

Any help would be really appreciated.
