    I was wondering about people's thoughts in the M7 processor in the new iPads... I see it's use in phones but even then it's not tracking anything when I have the phone on a table top or basically just not in my pocket. What's the hidden reason in missing here? Or are all the m7 devices somehow communicating to each other to try to 'triangulate' exactly what we are doing?

    It's just an added feature to make life easier for the NSA to track your every move.

    My only immediate thought is that it helps reduce strain on the primary A7 processor and improve battery life. Might be an inherent component in all A7 chips. Also would help standardise all future iOS devices for the inevitable iWatch launch ;)

    Since it is built into the A7 SoC, it was just easier for apps to leave it in. Not to mention it takes some stress off the processor by handling any motion based calculations that need to be done.
