    Just got a 5s today and I'm doing a restore from a backup of an iPhone5 and as it's restoring now I'm wondering, are the apps that are being restored 64bits where applicable?

    Is the app universal for either 32 or 64bits or is the appropriate binary downloaded from the app store when you first get it?

    Are there even any 64bit apps?

    If the apps are being copied from your computer, most likely they will be the older versions that aren't 64-bit ready (since the apps restored were probably transferred from your iPhone 5).

    The 5s is compatible with 32-bit apps, so no worries with compatibilitity. Just make sure to update the apps from the App Store if you see the red badge. :)

    Also, Infinity Blade 3 is 64-bit compatible, and I know there's a 3D jelly bean app that is 64-bit as well.
