    probably a dumb question, I have an iPad Air 2 wifi but do not have the option for low power mode? Why is that?

    No idea, but if I had to venture a guess I'd go with because iPads have a substantially bigger battery, and thus better battery life as it is.

    Not sure if the new iPods have the setting, not really familiar with those.

    Don't know about the iPod 6 but the 5 doesn't have it either.

    One of the main reasonings I heard for the phones only, was to disable the background tasks/features to extended the calling talk/standby times for emergencies until you can get to a charger.
