With 64-bit architecture in its A7 processor, the iPhone 5s is as much about what mobile computing will do tomorrow as it is about how innovative Apple is today. As the fastest mobile on the market, this smartphone has the potential to crush the performance of its predecessor (and the colorful iPhone 5c), as well as its Android and Windows-based competitors. But first, the apps need to take advantage of the iPhone 5s’ specs. Some apps, like Infinity Blade III, activity tracker Argus, and Smule’s karaoke simulator Sing! are already crunching on the A7, but most developers are just getting started on this desktop-equivalent platform. In the meantime, having Touch ID fingerprint security and a more nimble camera that also shoots in slow motion could be enough to rope in early adopters. If they don’t buy in now, they will later, because 64-bit smartphone computing is here to stay. <br><br><strong>Link:</strong>
