Apple's iPhone 5s mightn't have brought many changes from an aesthetic standpoint, but in terms of hardware, the Cupertino based company really upped the ante. For instance, alongside the much-improved A7 SoC, the device also included the M7 coprocessor, and with the next-gen iPhone 6 set to include an A8 chip, details of the handset's corresponding M7 have now emerged.
Motion tracking technology has seen something of a boom in the consumer market in recent times, and not only have we seen products like the Nike FuelBand take the market by storm, but mobile devices have also proven themselves to be worthy accompaniments to the fitness-conscious. With the right app and solid hardware, a smartphone can make for a very useful activity-tracker, and Fitbit for iOS latest app update aims to achieve exactly that with your iPhone 5s.
As well as being the very first smartphone on the market packing a 64-bit processor, Apple's iPhone 5s also features an M7 motion coprocessor, allowing processes to be more efficiently managed while also preserving those essential droplets of battery life. But while these new hardware upgrades are great and all, their powers can only be fully recognized once developers adapt their apps to take advantage of them, and Strava Run, the socially-swayed training app, is the first such utility to make use of the Cupertino's new coprocessor.
