The newest iPhone model will feature a 64-bit A7 processor, which boasts CPU speeds twice as fast as in previous models. According to Apple boss Tim Cook, it will be, “the world’s first smart phone with 64-bit desktop-class architecture”
Additionally, the 5S will include a second chip called the M7, which is a motion co processor that tracks motion data. According to Apple, this chip will pave the way for a new generation in fitness and health apps.
Apple has also confirmed a ‘Touch ID’ element, which allows for fingerprint scanning to increase phone security. This new fingerprint system will replace the current passcode security system.
