I'm surprised the 5S is still supported even if it's a 64 bit phone. Things you do all the time, like launching Camera and typing with the keyboard, happen faster than ever. Last year, Apple wanted the additional power and performance that comes with 64-Bit Processors. Apple moved to 64-bit chips and apps with the iPhone 5s and the iPad Air, both of which it released in 2013. Additional features include the ability to pay friends using Apple Pay, Do Not Disturb while driving to help users stay more focused on the road, even more intelligence and a new voice for Siri and new professional capabilities to Photos and Camera. The hardware is not compatible, only 64-bit devices such as the iPhone 5S, 6, 6S and 7 series can get it.

Manage your notifications in real time from the Lock screen, send notifications from a specific app to Notification Center, or turn them off altogether.

So if you typically pick up a coffee on the way to work, Siri will learn your routine and suggest when to place your order from the Lock screen. The company often excludes older devices form running new versions of its operating systems.
