Start64!Smartphones with quad-core processors are the future, right? Well, not so fast. Apple's spanking-new 64-bit A7 is dual-core, according to Anandtech, a widely-read chip review site. It's seems that Apple is bucking a trend here.

Start64!Apple is hooking up developers with the necessary tools to take advantage of the A7 chip’s 64-bit architecture, encouraging them to deploy their iOS 7-native apps on the iTunes App Store. The A7 chip is currently only found in the iPhone 5s, but Apple will most likely include the spec with its upcoming iPads as well.

Start64!Apple may be the first company to introduce a smartphone with a 64-bit processor, but it may not be long before you start to see Android phones and tablets with 64-bit chips.

Start64!Much has been made of Apple's A7 processor's 64-bit support, and if it's built around ARM's latest architecture as that seems to imply, then there's a lot there's a lot more to the next generation Apple processor than we're seeing.

Start64!Let’s answer that question straight up front: you don’t. Not today, where nothing exists that’ll take advantage of the 64-bit architecture in Apple’s A7 processor — not in a meaningful way.

Start64!IDG News Service - Buyers looking for a tablet with Intel's new Bay Trail Atom chip and a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 will have to wait until early next year. Intel executives on Wednesday said the first Bay Trail tablets will use only the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, despite 64-bit support on the chip.

Start64!The new iPhone 5s features a 64-bit processor, which is impressive, but it will be years until the jump to the new architecture proves truly useful. Yes, the 64-bit A7 chip is a good early start in the next growth cycle and is generally faster that previous 32-bit chips, but the main benefit of having a 64-bit chip on the iPhone – having more than 4GB of RAM – will not come into effect for years.

Start64!The launch of Apple’s new iPhone 5S focused heavily on the handset’s new 64-bit A7 processor, with the company boasting that this new chip would offer “desktop-class architecture” to users and just days later rival phone-maker Samsung have jumped onto the 64-bit bandwagon and declared that they had plans to use similar chips in the future.

Start64!KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung clearly isn't afraid of the wrath of Apple fanbois, having revealed on Wednesday that its next generation smartphones will, like the iPhone 5S, feature 64-bit processors.

Start64!Apple's new iPhone 5S is 56 times more powerful than its "ancestor", the first iPhone, launched just six years ago. The new 64-bit A7 chip may be powerful enough to run a laptop, but it's not the only high-tech aspect of the new phone.

Start64!Like many others on the East Coast, I spent my lunch hour going through the various computer industry liveblogs of Apple's iPhone 5C and 5S launch event. While many of the things we heard about both devices were covered extensively in various leaks and analysis in weeks prior, by far the most the most important new thing that was announced at the event was that the iPhone 5S uses a 64-bit ARM chip of Apple's own design, the A7.

Start64!Apple's launch of the iPhone 5S, the high-end device in the company's one-two smartphone punch, brings the first 64-bit mobile device to the market. What's unclear is whether the 64-bit smartphone will be much of a selling point for anyone who doesn't play Infinity Blade.

Start64!A first for Apple: a 64-bit processor in a phone. The newly announced A7 processor is a first for Apple, and a real selling point for the speed and power of the new iPhone 5S. With promises of a two-fold processing increase, the “desktop-class architecture” promises to keep the harmonious Apple hardware/software balance intact.
