Apple is reportedly testing new A7 chip for iPhone 5S that is 31% faster than current A6 processor. A separate motion tracking chip is also expected for new iPhone that will come with camera upgrade.
Apple is said to have tested new A7 chips for its upcoming next-generation iPhone. It is reported that the new iPhone 5S will support a 31% faster A7 chips than current A6. A Fox News reporter Clayton Morris tweeted this Sunday about the support of A7 chip and said that "it’s very fast".
Not only the new A7 chip will be faster, but it will also be a 64-bit one. 9to5Mac states that some previous reports points toward 64-bit ARMv8 processor support for iPhone 5S. Though it is not clear yet. But some iPhone 5S prototypes are being tested with 64-bit processors that will make iOS 7 graphics like animations and transparencies more clear and smooth than in current iOS versions.
Clayton Morris also claims in another tweet that iPhone 5S will also get the support of motion tracking via a separate chip. He also said that new iPhone will have "an interesting camera upgrade" too. It seems that separate tracking chip can be a part of camera upgrade. We have already told you that Apple is improving its 8MP iPhone 5S camera functionality by adding new F2.0 aperture and dual LED flash. A new motion tracking processor port can also be added in this upgrade.
Other most rumored feature of iPhone 5S is the support of fingerprint sensor embedded under the home button. A 128GB gold variant of iPhone 5S is also highly speculated. September 10th is the rumored launch event date, that is not too far now. We have to wait for 2 more weeks to know all about new iPhone lineup. Apple is also expected to launch its low-cost plastic iPhone 5C during the event and most probably a new iPad version too.
