What's odd is that there is a version for other markets that supports TDD LTE, just not in Sprint's specific band.

It will support Sprint's new lower band, so it will at least be dual-band for good basic LTE coverage. I wonder if it will be the only dual-band LTE phone Sprint ever offers?

maybe, but remember... this is apple. enough of an update to satisfy a upgrade but not enough to develop the solution until the next build.

apple is a great phone... i wont take that away. but as far as new tech, android is kicking butt.

i do like the idea of 64 bit, but i wonder about its practicality,

They make the hardware.
The make the OS.
They provide with the SDK.

Yes it will be practical. Developers (me included) will eventually (almost immediately after release) be forced to make 64bit compatible/optimized apps before being able to submit them to the app store.

So far I've not seen any official notification from apple, but time will tell.
