The Apple iPhone 5s breaks several new grounds, one being that it is the first to include a 64 bit chip at its core, which is something that has never been seen on any smartphone device so far. The A7 chip is considered to be the latest and best processor from the Apple camp right now which no doubt will provide a boost to its performance. Most other smartphones current doing the rounds in the market relies on 32 bit processors.
The A7 can now be expected to find application on the future iPad and iPad Mini as well as these have larger displays than the 4 inch display on the iPhone 5s. Gaming for which the A7 has far better potential would run better on the tablet devices. The Retina display technology that the iPad mini is expected to come with would add further zing to the gamers delight on the tablet.
Apple themselves have acknowledged the extra potential of the A7 processor on rendering detailed graphics and even processing the complexities of these graphics at very high speeds. A7 chips have the ability to support open GL ES version 3.0 and that is what makes the difference when processing dynamic graphics required for gaming.
The A7 on the iPhone 5S at its debut does adhere to Apple’s policy of a new chip with their new gadget. This was seen when they had launched the iPhone 5 in September which came powered by the A6 processor.
Another area where the iPhone 5s scores a first is the inclusion of the finger print sensing technology underneath the home button. This no doubt will make the device even more secured than it ever was while the same can also be used to authenticate purchases from the Apple App store or from iTunes. Its just a matter of time before we get to see the feature making it to other smartphone devices with the HTC One Max already rumored to include such a sensor at the rear.
