I think it's very interesting that Apple demands the developers to only submit 64-bit apps to the App Store from February 1. Could it be because of new coming devices that needs that? Maybe they preparing for the iPad Pro, or the rumored 12-inch MacBook that maybe is not a “normal” Macbook? Or is it a preparation for a merge of iOS and OS X?
If it's nothing of that we at least get even better app performance. Apps will not use as much memory or storage either.

The switch could have a meaningful impact on the apps you use. At the least, it should reduce the need for iOS to juggle both 32- and 64-bit code. That's good for performance, whether or not there are meaningful upgrades to the apps themselves. The move may also spur more developers to fine-tune their apps for the A7 and A8 chips in recent iOS gear – even if they don't need to use higher-precision 64-bit math, that could still lead to faster games, media players and other demanding titles.
