Developers Alerted That They May Now Submit 64-bit Applications to the App Store
On Monday, Apple notified developers that they could begin submitting applications to the App Store that will offer support for the 64-bit A7 chip, which will be included inside of every iPhone 5s.
The notice is shown below:

It is also possible for developers to offer a 32-bit version of an application for iOS 6 and a 64-bit version of an application for iOS 7. Xcode will make it simple for developers to compile 32-bit and/or 64-bit versions of their applications as necessary.
The iPhone 5s isn't the only device that's expected to have a 64-bit chip. The next generation iPad is predicted to offer a 64-bit A7X chip that will also be capable of running these specially-built applications.

And is this supposed to be an amazing thing for us end-users? What is the benefit of having apps in 64bit? (Not being ironic, but I really don't understand the difference...)
