    I don't see much info on apps that actually use the 5s m7 processor. Anyone know any apps that utilize this feature?

    I felt like the m7 processor was a selling point at the keynote last year but haven't heard much about it ever since.

    Breeze - They even had a crazy ad about it.

    It's a selling point, but it's one of those things that fade into everyday use and you stop thinking about it, like most iOS features do.

    If you were thinking that thousands of apps would use it overnight... Remember what it's even for to begin with.

    Don't wanna hijack the thread but how about the A7 processor? That 64bit was also a major sale point right? Did any app ever took advantage of that?

    I don't think many app are currently maxing out the power on the 5s, but i'm sure having the 64Bit processor will help it keep up with later iPhone gens.

    There are a few, I think. I think one possible concern is that if you create an app that relies on the A7 processor to run properly, that implies performance will suffer with older devices, and you potentially lock yourself out of a larger customer base. So not many people will create apps that tax the iPhone 5s, except maybe games sporting extremely heavy graphics and animations.
