iPhone 5S Official, Will Be World’s First 64-bit Smartphone!


The iPhone 5S is here, and it’s looking to be quite an impressive update! The iPhone 5S might look similar to the iPhone 5 on the outside, but on the inside lays some serious computing power.

So where’s the magic here? It’s all in the processor, the A7. While the device still rocks the same amount of RAM as the iPhone 5, the processor is 64-bit chip, making the iPhone 5S to the world’s first smartphone to feature a 64-bit processor, ahead of even Android.

Some other other specs include:

  • 4-inch display, with resolution of 1136 x 640 (326 ppi)
  • Apple M7 motion co-processor, allows continuous measure of motion data.
  • Finger print scanner in the Home Button
  • Open GL ES 3.0 support
  • 8MP camera with f2.2 aperture, two-LED flash
  • Expanded LTE bands
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi
  • 16/32/64 GB of storage
  • Home button made of laser-cut sapphire crystal
  • Finger print is not avalible through other apps, and is only for encryption and logging in. Fingerprint data stored locally.
  • 10 hour battery life for LTE and Wi-Fi browsing, around 8 hours 3G browsing, and 250 hours stand-by
  • aluminum case with colors of Silver, Gold and Space Gray

Impressively, iOS 7 will support 32 and 64-bit processors and the iPhone 5S will easily support existing 32-bit apps, though you can expect many key apps to offer a 64-bit version as soon as possible. Could this eventually create some fragmentation? Potentially – but Apple usually is pretty good about keeping these kinds of issues to a minimum.

The iPhone 5S will arrive on September 20th and will include iLife and iWork iOS suites for free of charge. As for pricing, the 16GB version will cost $199, 32GB for $299 and 64GB for $399.

While I’m an Android user, I have to admit I’m impressed to hear that Apple’s latest has a 64-bit processor. What do you think of the iPhone 5S, day one purchase or not interested?
