New iPod touch – Are there any „hidden“ features Apple didn‘t mention on their website? Hey Siri, LivePhotos etc.
Just read in a post and saw on YouTube that iPod touch 7th generation now supports raise to wake (because of A10).
I am curious whether there are other features made possible by A10, like
– always-on „Hey Siri“ (this feature requires at least an A9 Chip (however 12.9-inch iPad Pro 1st gen and 9.7-inch iPad 5th gen did‘t get this feature); might the single microphone of iPod touch be a limitation?) Processor-wise iPod touch would qualify for this feature (9.7-inch iPad 6th gen supports it with its A10 chip)
– Live Photos (also available on most devices with A9 Chip and on all with A10 chip or later; although Apple didn‘t update the camera hardware; however I‘m quite sure that both 9.7-inch iPad 5th and 6th gen supporting this feature do have the same 8MP Camera of iPad Air 2; and I think iPod touch hast the same 8MP Camera since its update in 2015; so hardware-wise they must be the same)
– Retina Flash (depends whether the display controller responsible for this is in the A10 and iPod touch‘s Retina Display supports it. Actually iPod touch 5th has the same 4-inch display as iPhone 5. And the display of iPhone 5 is used in iPhone 5s and iPhone SE, and iPhone SE supports this feature because of a new display controller )
Unfortunately the support support documents haven‘t been updated yet. Does anyone already have the new iPod touch or knows about the availability of these features on the 7th generation iPod touch?
