    Actually, I'm probably skipping this generation entirely. The 5S just ain't doing it for me, and I learned my lesson about S's following the 4S (but the 3GS was probably worth it, so... eh).

    As a geek to another geek, I find that offensive!

    I am sorry to have offended you. However... it's just not doing it for me. I see no reason to upgrade.

    I am the master of nothing, student of (almost) everything. Stop with that nonsense.

    Also, good gravy man, it's not a damnable offense to disagree with me.

    Why is the 5S 64-bit? I thought it was better to use 32-bit unless you needed 64 for the RAM.

    I curious on how much ram they actually stuck in the 5S
    Between the new CPU and M7, running 64-bit they had to put more then 1 gig in right?

    I would think so to run both chips like that.

    Biggest reason: Marketing.

    Hey Cowboy..

    I'm currently on an AT&T plan with 2 lines until November...

    I want to get the 5C and 5S at their discounted rate with 2 year contract.

    Will AT&T allow me to add 2 additional lines so I can get both, then cancel both lines after a month and pay the ETF and other associated fees?

    I'd figure I'd save almost $200 doing it that way versus paying full retail for them, but wondering if its a hassle

    Bingo. Unless the thing has more than 4 GiB of RAM, there's a not insignificant performance hit (~2% in my estimation) using twice as many bits to address the same amount of RAM (which can be done inside of 32 bits, so it's an additional 32 zeroes for no good reason).

    While a 64 bit processor does allow access to >4Gb memory, there are other advantages.
    For a very simple explanation see What the iPhone 5s '64-bit' processor means, in plain English. - The Next Web but that is obviously a very, very simplified version of what can get quite complicated.
