As I’ve mentioned before, the iPhone 5s with a brand new 64-bit processor was the fastest. It took only 20.5 seconds for it to boot. The boot speed of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 is 25.9 and 29.0 seconds respectively. You should note though, that the devices were restored to iOS 7 before the testing and contained no user data. So the actual boot speed may vary.
Here’s the boot speed ‘competition’ video.

Our engineers will be deprocessing the Apple A7 as soon as they can to confirm this or to provide different information.

The gold iPhone 5s seems to be a device of high demand - according to the latest WSJ report, the company from Cupertino has asked its suppliers to increase the production of the new handset by one third.

Apple has greatly improved the multitasking switcher in iOS 7.
Multitasking has always been a smart way to switch between apps. Now it’s even smarter. Because iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them. So if you tend to check your favorite social app at 9:00 a.m. every day, your feed will be ready and waiting for you. That’s multitasking in iOS 7. It knows what you want to do before you do.
A smarter way to multitask.
