> Adding this issue for discussion.
> We still support iOS 5.0 in the Deployment Target.
> iOS 6.0 and greater support enables arm64 support (64-bit) but not sure of any advantages
there, really. 
> Also, this is consistent with our previous support where we only support the current
iOS version and one version back. Also, finding a device with iOS 5 support (besides the iPad
1, which cannot have iOS 6 support) is becoming problematic.
> iOS 6 API diffs from 5:
> https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/releasenotes/General/iOS60APIDiffs/index.html
> Apple's note regarding 64-bit support: https://developer.apple.com/news/index.php?id=9162013a
> {quote}
> If you wish to continue to support iOS 6 then you will need to build for 32-bit only.
Next month we will be making changes that will allow you to create a single app binary that
supports 32-bit on iOS 6, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit on iOS 7.

> So, based on that I think if we go ahead and support arm64 we wait for this 64-bit iOS
fat binary functionality coming "next month". This probably will coincide with their Mavericks
10.9 OS and SDK release with the new accompanying Xcode bump.
