    In iOS 7, iPhone has a feature known as Frequent Locations located in Notification Center. This is a very convenient feature of iOS 7 because it predicts your daily route based on frequently visited locations (and the order in which you visit these locations, too). It also helps Maps become a better application, too; it uses traffic information and location times to determine how long it would take to reach your next destination.

    Why isn't this feature on iPod touch? I think that this would be extremely convenient for iPod touch users. These users take their iPod touches with them everywhere they go (I know I do), and having this built-in feature would strengthen the iPod touch's capabilities. Users wouldn't have to rely on third-party apps like Google Search to determine how long it would take them to head to work, school, or other places. It’s a small feature that would help the device become more useful.

    And Apple needs to include a battery percentage icon for iPod touch. People are complaining about that. Even when customers in Apple Stores ask specialists about this issue, they don't know what to say.

    Frequent locations requires a GPS chip and the iPod Touch has no GPS chip, so it cannot determine locations.

    The iPhone has cellular tower triangulation plus gps to get location data.
