Am I missing the point of it being 64 bit?

Maybe.

Since there is only 2GB of RAM it seems pointless that they have a 64 bit architecture.

You probably believe that the increase from 32 bit addressing to 48/64 bit addressing allows the device to utilize more RAM. You would be correct. However another side effect is that it also allows for more general purpose registers.

I believe the iPhone 5 is using the 'Apple A6'/ARMv7-A which had 15 general purpose registers. While this new iPhone 5S is using the new 64 bit 'Apple A7'/ARMv8-A which has 31 general-purpose 64-bit registers. More registers essentially means that you can do more work. I would estimate an increase in performance of 15-25% (depending on the compiler optimizations) on this basis alone. However the ARMv8 also contains a new architecture so the end result may be as high as 25-30% increase in performance.

They will just by the next gadget regardless.

Apple is slow losing market ground to the competition. I am currently using the Nokia Lumia 720 which has the 'Qualcomm Snapdragon'/ARMv7.
