Everybody loves a good iPhone 5S rumor. Now reports are circulating that Apple’s next handset may include motion tracking technology. The feature would be powered by a second processor, and could result in improvements to the iPhone 5S’ camera.
The news comes via a tweet from Fox News’ Clayton Morris, who cites unnamed sources for the information. In addition to the motion tracking technology, Morris says the iPhone 5S will include Apple’s next-generation A7 processor. That chip is expected to be an impressive 31 percent faster than the A6 CPU found in the iPhone 5.

9to5Mac reports that the processor will likely be a 64-bit chip and should help smooth out the new animations and graphics included with Apple’s iOS 7. The A7 chip is said to be in testing in iPhone 5S prototypes, as well as the current iPhone 5. In addition to the iPhone 5S, there is also the possibility that the A7 CPU will be included in Apple’s next iPad.
As usual, Apple’s next smartphone has been the subject of much speculation. Beyond its processor, the handset is also said to include a fingerprint scanner, which could be used for unlocking the devices and purchasing apps. Other rumors point to wireless charging, LTE Advanced and a larger display. Apple is expected to announce its next iPhone during an event rumored to take place Sept. 10.
