    Is there a matrix showing what features, by iOS, work with what device(s)?

    For example, a highly touted feature of iOS 9.3 is Night Shift. But that feature is not available on the iPhone 5.

    Not a big deal for me, but it would have been helpful had I known before I learned the hard way.

    If such a matrix exists, will some kind chap or chapette please post the link?

    TIA!

    Alas, I was hoping for something a bit more sophisticated, but it does answer the question and is appreciated. Maybe when I'm CEO of Apple...

    Really, many thanks!

    A matrix of region-specific features would be useful too. (I still can't believe the News app is in 3 countries only)

    Seems like there's a link to something like that (in the fine print at the bottom of that iOS updates page linked to earlier): http://www.apple.com/ios/feature-availability/

    There's also another way to get "night shift", without official Apple support. F.lux, which is the origins of removal of blue-light and moving into that orange hue, can be side-loaded using Xcode and a Mac. There's a few github projects for similar things around the interwebz as well. They don't require a 64-bit architecture and run on almost all iOS devices that I'm aware off. This might be your best option for getting that feature on your iPhone 5.

    A great link (now bookmarked), but alas, it primarily shows where some features are available, but does not show what devices are required to show them.

    And a big thanks to tremblewithfear6 for his post. I don't even think I would like Night Shift, but I just want know what's available where and on what devices (presuming the devices are up to date). I'm a bit surprised that someone has not created a web site to specifically address this issue. Of course, it could be that it's not a problem and 'tis only moi. Nah...

    Sure, I was just responding to the regional limitation question that was posed.

    I think just given the amount of features, making a list like this might be difficult (or annoying to put together).
