    does the final iOS 9 support hey Siri without a power source for the iPhone 6? Or is this feature limited to he new 6 plus?

    i think it's in both 6s and 6s+. certainly not in existing models.

    another feature for which I'm doubtful that new hardware was required. I feel the motion coprocessor in 5s and 6 could have done this job. oh well...

    Yes, M9 (some new circuitry) plus A9 integration, so it is a hardware limitation.
