    They will be available in subsequent beta. Don't worry. Of course, only some of them.

    Only the small things relating to 3D Touch, like flashlight level and the quick glance at folder notifications (interactive rich notifications currently aren't on the iPhone 6/6+ but Apple has confirmed they are coming), EDIT: and raise to wake.

    All the big major features, however, the iPhone 6 and 6+ are getting.

    I am afraid you need jailbreak to get this feature.

    If true that's amazing.

    You don't happen to have a link or anything do you?

    I can't tell from your response here: are you saying you recall someone asking Apple about this and Apple said yes, or are you conjecturing that to be the case?

    I don't mean to be a grammar cop here, but I'm curious as to your choice of words. Why don't you say "I remember seeing/reading/hearing somewhere that Apple was asked this question and my recollection of Apple's response is that these other devices would get raise to wake. I just don't remember where I saw/read/heard that"? Because the way you are phrasing it makes it seem like you are speculating as to both the question and Apple's response.

    Apple has come out and said the "raise to wake" feature will be exclusive to the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S+, and the iPhone SE. All iPhones with the M9 Co-Processor is what they said.

    Rich notifications are coming in a later beta.

    And where/when did Apple say/confirm that? (The part about M9 only)

    You can definitely say I'm wrong because this does not have a source. If I'm wrong then that is great, but "raise to wake" would make sense on the newer devices because the Touch-ID is so freaking fast you fly through your lock screen before the screen is even finished brightening up all the way.

    Yeah, I definitely mis-read. I don't think Apple has commented on anything about it being exclusive. So I do apologize. Haha.

    IF Apple would bring Raise to Wake to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, it would have to be turned off by default. The thing is, since these devices do not have a coprocessor that's always on, it can drain quite a lot of your battery. The M9 was kinda designed for this kind of features. Just like why Hey Siri works even when the iPhone 6s is not on the charger.

    And that is why I doubt it's coming to older devices.

    The M8 is always on though for things like the gyroscope and accelerometer that the Raise to a Wake would use. (How else does an iPhone count steps and flights of stairs all while locked and in your pocket.)

    M9's only real exclusive is the Always On for the microphone so Siri can hear when you call for it. Pretty sure Raise to Wake isn't using the microphone to hear if you are picking it up from the table or wherever.

    Once a jailbreak comes out for iOS 10, you'll have all those features anyway on a 6. Raise to Wake, 3D Touch, etc. I have 3D Touch on my 6+ by long pressing (iOS 9).

    I don't believe that will come to the iPhone 6. The requirement is the same as that of Hey Siri, the M9 Co-Processor which only the iPhone 6s has.
    --- Post Merged, Jun 27, 2016 ---
    I think the difference is because the M9 lives within the Processor, it is more efficient and can do much more because of that with much less effect on battery.

    No, you don't have 3D Touch. You have a specie long press, a right click if you will.

    Haha. You won't have 3D Touch. There is a tweak that simulates 3D Touch by looking at how much of your finger is on the screen...but other than that, it is mainly hardware that runs 3D Touch. Everything else though, you are right, once there is a jailbreak, you will get all that stuff...but that means you have to jailbreak, and if you are like me, I hate jail breaking.

    So please tell us, how does it being in the 'processor' (I think you mean the SoC) make it more efficient? The whole point of these co-processors for dedicated tasks is they don't have to wake the processor (CPU) isn't it? So whilst the M9 might be more efficient I'm not really sure how that is through virtue of being on the SoC. it's not like they only just made these co processors efficient at their tasks.
