64-bit has taken quite a long time to implement, but I think it's going to be the standard for quite a while. There really isn't a dire need for 128-bit yet and there probably won't be for a long time.

I imagine the same was said for 64 bit xD

Great move. Now we just need >2GB of RAM standard and Apple needs to stop selling 32bit devices like the original iPad Mini and iPhone 5C. Hopefully and most likely next year.

Yeah, that would give planned obsolescence a big boost, so that people would fell obligated to buy the new 64bit models.

(Oh come on, you don't think Apple has thought that through)?

I'm more annoyed on learning swift, I wish swift would take a dive straight down because I really like objective c.
