Unity 4.6.2 with 64-bit iOS support
Version 4.6.2 of the popular game engine Unity is the first public release with iOS 64-bit support, using their new IL2CPP technology. IL2CPP is an innovative scripting technology developed in-house by Unity. It delivers greatly improved performance for all scripting inside projects, and is compatible with the current Mono-AOT solution used on iOS builds. IL2CPP enables the developers to rapidly port their scripting solution to new platforms (WebGL support etc.) and architectures, of which ARM64 (the architecture that underpins 64-bit on iOS devices) is one. With Unity 4.6.2 you'll thus be able to make a Universal build that works on both 32-bit and 64-bit iOS devices. [source]
