Apple to use 64-bit A7 chips for iPhone 5S: report

Apple is set debut a new A7 processor with its iPhone 5S that is expected to be announced on September 10, Fox News has reported. Expected to operate on 64-bit code, the dual-core A7 processor is running about 31% faster than the existing iPhone 5′s A6 processor. The 64-bit structure could be a big differentiator for Apple, as that could open up new doors for the technology. Chipmaker ARM and its licensees are currently working on 64-bit chips to work on a broader set of applications and to move the technology into web-connected data centres.
