“As Apple’s iPhone 5S event approaches, some new details about the new device’s internals are emerging. Clayton Morris has claimed on Twitter that the iPhone 5S’s A7 processor is “running at about 31% faster” than the iPhone 5′s A6 chip. The iPhone 5′s A6 chip is dual-core, and it seems like the iPhone 5S will also remain dual-core,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“However, there could be a major differentiator: 64-bit,” Gurman reports. “We’ve independently heard claims that some of the iPhone 5S internal prototypes include 64-bit processors.”
Gurman reports, “Morris has also tweeted that the iPhone 5S will include a new dedicated chip for motion tracking. He speculates that this will play into a camera upgrade. We previously reported that the iPhone 5S could include major camera software changes, including a new slow-motion mode that captures 120 FPS video. Besides a new processor and camera, the iPhone 5S will likely include a fingerprint sensor.”
