Apple is asking developers for 64-bit only apps from February and onward

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.

Via Apple wants all iOS apps to use 64-bit code starting in February

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.

The Apple Watch UI will probably come to iOS too

It's interesting what Michael Steeber from 9to5mac writes in the article below is exactly the same idea I'm talking about in the video above. The idea that future iOS versions could be based on the Apple Watch UI. It's actually a perfect UI for large devices like the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, to be able to easily use them with one hand. Personally I'm sure that Apple will evolve iOS into more like the Apple Watch UI in a near future. Apple's future could be based on the Apple Watch. And Apple won't have one more OS that is separated from the other too (iOS and OSX) that is now merging more and more. Of course will they share the same UI and navigation in the future.

Modernizing the home screen: How iOS could take cues from the design of the Apple Watch | 9to5Mac

Moving the Apple Watch home screen to the iPhone breaks down barriers that have been part of the system since day one. Gone are the concepts of home screen pages and the dock, replaced with one large, fluid grid of apps. The app grid not only looks more modern with its round icons, but it scales perfectly to any size display, all the way from the smallest Apple Watch to the 9.7” iPad, without looking crammed or too spread out at any size.
