iOS 7 has been engineered with deep technical and design integration with both the advanced 64-bit technologies in the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.  This includes the native 64-bit kernel, libraries and drivers.  Built-in apps have also been re-engineered for 64-bit and iOS 7 provides a seamless developer transition with Xcode support and the ability to run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps. The operating system also provides deep integration with the new Touch ID sensor and takes full advantage of the new iSight camera sensor to enable new features such as automatic image stabilisation, Burst Mode and Slo-Mo video with 120 fps. The camera on the new iPhone 5s is up to two-times faster auto-focus allowing for faster photo capture and also better dynamic range.
