And iOS was build optimized to run in 64-bit, A7 perform better and take advantage on the OS. The A7 is up 2x faster in CPU and GPU compare to the A6.

There is an extra M7 coprocessor found on the iPhone 5S, which designed specifically to track physical activity and measure motion data using the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass on the 5S. Thus, workload on the A7 was reduced and M7 is power efficient enough to save the phone battery.
