Apple has started accepting submissions for iPhone 5s 64-Bit applications from developers, enabling developers to enhance their applications to use the new A7 processor and M7 GPU as well as the latest Apple iOS 7 mobile operating system.
The new iPhone 5S with its 64-Bit architecture will be launching on Friday September 20th 2013 and Apple has only this week allowed developers to start submitting 64-bit apps ahead of the iPhone 5s launch.
As the iPhone 5S is the first 64-Bit smartphone created by Apple and the first major 64-bit smartphone processor available on the market. But currently if developers wish to support the older iOS 6 mobile operating system they will need to build 32-bit applications only.
However Apple has explained that next month, they will be making changes that will enable developers to support 32-bit on iOS 6 and both 32- and 64-bit on iOS 7 with a single binary.
The iPhone 5S comes with a a 4 inch Retina display that features a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels at 326 pixels per inch and an 800:1 contrast ratio. and is fitted with a Apple designed A7 processor with 64-bit architecture and a new m7 motion coprocessor, the processor is apparently twice as fast as the Apple A6 processor.
One of the major new features on the iPhone 5S is its new fingerprint technology, which Apple calls Touch ID. The Touch ID sensor is located on the handsets home button, and it will unlock your iPhone when you place your finger on the home button.
