He also made a tweet saying that the A7 chip is 31 percent faster than the A6 chip and mentioned motion sensing as well:
Sources are telling me the new iPhone's A7 chip is running at about 31% faster than A6. I’m hearing it’s very fast.
I’ve also heard there’s a separate chip devoted to motion tracking. Should be an interesting camera upgrade.
Longer term, Ive also has shown interest in altering how people control their computers. He has met with makers of gesture technology that lets people navigate their gadgets by moving their hands – without touching the screen, said a personal familiar with those interactions.
It has been previously reported that the camera on the iPhone 5 will be improved and feature dual-LED flash and F2.0 aperture that’s big enough to provide good performance in low light conditions. The video recording is expected at 120 frames per second.
Ming-Chi has been active about the handset as well. In his note to the investors, he said the A7 chip may be stocked with ARMv8 64-bit CPU platform.
However, iOS 7 beta releases indicate that 64-bit isn’t a possibility. The present SDK for iOS 7 doesn’t offer support of applications when it comes to 64-bit. 32-bit mode looks more a reality. 64-bit is more likely to be on 2014 iOS devices that will be stocked with the A8 process.
Previous leaked images suggest an A7 chip with the model APL0698. The A6 chip is APL0589, which shows a 10 digit increase. Mark Gurman says that 64-bit chip is in the test phase
For what it’s worth, Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac has learned that 64-bit has been in testing.
We’re told that the 64-bit processing will make animations, transparencies, and other iOS 7 graphical effects appear much more smoothly than on existing iOS Devices.Gurman also says that iPhone 5S owners will be able to authenticate themselves by holding down the Home button to use the fingerprint reading:
We’re also consistently hearing that payments integration for the fingerprint scanner is a long-term goal, but not something happening this year.
As a source said, “think of the passcode-replacing fingerprint scanner as a beta test for future features.”Gurman also states that the budget iPhone or iPhone 5C will be a iPhone 5 with a plastic shell.
iPhone 5C will contain repacked internals into a plastic and is expected to be priced at $400 to $500 according to Ming-Chi Kuo. This makes sense as the handset can be offered at lesser prices in a polycarbonate plastic compared to the aluminum unibody design.
September 10 is the release date, where we will be confirmed about the exact details.
