A7 + M7 + 64bit iOS + Touch ID + UI = Apple is 5+ ye... moreHaha. Well, the A7 has been out a long time. It's v8 of the A7 which has 64 bit instructions and doubles the registers of v7, however, Apple can't patent any of it because it's ARM's technology that Apple has ALREADY licensed.
But the real point is this is all a MARKETING gimmick that you and other non-tech types quickly buy into because ZERO applications use the 64 bit instruction set.
I say MARKETING gimmick because Apple didn't deliver any information on the 64 bit SDK to developers. Other than the OS, I doubt that even Apple has re-written their own applications to take advantage of the 64 bit architecture.
The functionality of the M7 is already available on other SoC solutions like Motorola's X8 or Samsungs Exnyos which handles the Gesture, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope, RGB,Proximity, Barometer, Temperature & Humidity on the 4 lower power cores (which is ironic since this M7 architecture is using the same approach, for which many people criticized Samsung).
But hey, don't let me stop you from drinking the kool-aid

A7 + M7 + 64bit iOS + Touch ID + UI = Apple is 5+ years ahead of the competition and moving further ahead fast...
I don't think the competition will ever reach this level let alone catchup.
Apples phones are too expensive for the China market to gain market share. Most people don't buy on-contract phones in Asia, they are pre-paid. The 5c is over $500 without a contract. Too many better options for less money.
