    Another reason besides being first is that Apple now has a huge lead in the app market compared to its competitors. Since they built iOS 7 in 64bit as well, developers can start making apps that support 64bit and test them on 64bit hardware. Other mobile OS developers still have to wait for the 64bit OS before they can start building 64bit apps and then have to wait for 64bit hardware.

    Agreed with the above. No matter if his opinion is yay or nay, Apple was first and will lead this new tech in cell phones.
    lmao at your obvious lack of doing any research. apple was NOT the first to put a 64bit CPU into a cell phone, that was already done more than a year ago.


    THE FIRST CELL PHONE WITH A 64 BIT CPU WAS THE Huawei Ascend D Quad


    Gold iPhone, copy of Samsung's numerous offerings. 64 BIT CPU copy of Huawei. live with it.

    How about, the first to do it where people actually noticed or cared.

    Apple copied none of those cheap azz tacky gold Samsungs that came before. The "gold" in the gold i5s is very understated, does not feel or look tacky in the least IMO.

    Don't worry about it, jonG has been relentlessly searching Google for the 'first 64bit cellphone' so he could come on here to 'share his wisdom!'

    Nobody else has heard of them either! LOL!

    I want you to read the first line of this Wikipedia article about the processor in that phone:

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_Cortex-A9_MPCore

    That was a 32bit phone that shipped with Android 4.0 which most definitely is not 64bit so that makes it a 32bit phone. You cannot run 64bit apps in a 32bit environment. The only thing 64bit was the memory controller. The A7 also features a 64bit memory controller but it is a 64bit processor.

    I am always impressed by your complete lack a research and impulse to post the first thing you come across on google as fact. Just go someplace else with your nonsense, NO ONE wants you here.

    Since you don't know of them, they must not be important? Most of their US offerings are weak sauce, but worldwide, they offer much better phones for the budget conscious.

    Anyway, funny thing is, is that Apple didn't even make the A7 chip, Samsung did.

    Chipworks: Apple’s A7 Chip Made By Samsung, M7 Co-Processor By NXP | TechCrunch

    Just like the last one, and the next one, most likely, and so on and so forth. So wooo 64 bit! Samsung will be much closer to offering something to make 64 bit worthwhile quicker since they are fond of throwing huge amounts of RAM at a phone. Granted a third of it goes to running their ugly Touchwiz interface and geewhiz features...

    lack of research like when you ran around saying Samsung copied the iPhone because they released a Gold phone when in FACT Samsung has been releasing gold phones for years. but that didnt matter, you ran with it anyway. then you say apple released the first 64 bit CPU, which again turns out to not be true so you run with it anyway.

    research or Google(ing) up facts dont matter to iPhone users, when you're told your info is wrong you dont care, you stick with the lie you're told.

    and if "nobody" wants me here then nobody should ask the mods to ban me since Ive been here since 2009 when I was an iPhone users.

    people like you hate when somebody has an opinion different from you., so they're labeled trolls and such. FREE SPEECH = you dont have to read or respond to what I write.

    First off, you have not given an opinion here, you are trying to say something is fact. The phone you say is 64bit is NOT and NEVER will be, that is not my opinion, it is a fact.

    Second, I don't give a **** about the color of the phone. I have always had a black iPhone and always will.

    Third, you are still here because you are a joke. Everyone waits for you to post some nonsense whenever there is a pro iPhone article. People expect you to post some "facts" and they get a good laugh from it.
