    Would that mean you would have to pay more or re buy apps to get the 64 bit versions or just continue running the 32 bit versions ??

    The iPad mini was released ~7 months after the iPad 3 and contains the same WiFi chip as the iPhone 5 (a Murata 339S0171).

    Unlikely since that would really confuse people. iOS 7 can still run 32-bit apps.

    So just a move by apple to drop the 30 pin devices or is there something else that is needed for air drop to work?

    In regards to 64bit processing on phones, Samsung Galaxy 2, Note, Galaxy 3, Note 2 and Galaxy 4 can all run 64bit OS (google developer forums have people building them with varying degrees of success). So its been done on the droid for a while, but Nokia were darting around it for a long time, even when they were doing the NGage it was on the cards then, at a basic form, but couldn't justify it, so kept developing and did for a while.

    In regards to re-buying apps, they are asking devs of larger (and more popular apps) to create 64bit native apps to force people to upgrade - there is the business plan!

    As for price, its mental what they're asking, but already O2 in Luton have sold out on pre-orders of both 5C and 5S...ridiculous!

    lol @ the price of the 5C - what is the point of it at that price? There is barely any difference between it and the 5S...this thing was supposed to come with a £3-400 price tag.

    Will be buying a secondhand 5 for sub £300 as soon as everyone rushes to sell theirs to get a 5S

    So:
    • No NFC
    • No improved camera
    • No bigger storage
    • 5C is more expensive than 4S and has plastic back
    • Fingerprint reader that 3rd parties are barred from using


    How innovative...

    It'll still be a hit though... *le sigh*

    It is totally revolutionary, imagine how much easier it is going to be now to compromise a phone. Just pull a perfect print off that shiny touch screen or back and use it on the built in sensor. Thanks Apple, all that security and privacy was getting tedious, thanks for stepping up and removing it entirely. Oh and I love the new look, more simple and clean without so much garnish, it reminds me of something, oh, that's right Windows Phone

    So many people kept their 4 when the 4S came out... but a lot of people must decide to upgrade. I have a 4S simply because it was cheaper because the 5 had been released. I am in no hurry to upgrade, but will probably go android when I do.
