Sure. It's just that 99,9 % of iphone buyers play angry birds, clash of clans and farmville, and I'm not entirely sure how much better their experience will be with the new 64-bit processor. Especially when you factor in that Apple must provide a compatibility layer for 32-bit apps for years to come, so unless you got some "Apple special developer dude" bonus check, there isn't much incentive to migrate your app to 64-bit.

The sixty-fourth time's the charm: the benefits of Apple moving to a 64-bit architecture on iPhone was... *drumroll*





SLIM TO NONE!

Edit: I'll reiterate this as well: it was basically useless, but it was mandatory.

My comment goes out to those who say "oh 64-bit processor is just a market gimmick by Apple and 64 bit doesnt offer any advantages right now"

They are completly wrong

What exactly, other than in cases where you are arrested or work in the military or government security detail, are fingerprints used to "track" you?

Fingerprints should only be part if what you worry about. Writing to forums online and using any cell phone offers someone the ability to track you. Driving a car, having a library card, credit card, going to a bank, shopping. You might want to consider moving to northern Idaho, cutting yourself off from all outside contact, including the use of the electrical grid, and start preparing for the end of the world.
Nope, I'm just realistic. Fingerprint scanners are a bad idea. You'll wake up one day and think 'did I really agree to this'
