    Obviously 3D Touch so no "Peeking" etc. but what else will not make it to the iPhone6?
    What about Live Photos and wallpaper for instance?

    Only the 6S and 6S Plus get the new motion wallpapers.

    Not so fussed about those to be fair because if you use Touch-ID you barely ever see the wallpapers, but Live Photos does seem interesting.
    Anything else you can think of that might not make it to the 6/6Plus?

    Fulltime Hey Siri will not be on the current 6. The 6S adds an integrated chip for always on Hey Siri. You will still be able to call on her while plugged in but with the 6S you will be able to call on her anytime including when your phone is locked and on battery.

    They use 3D Touch.

    I might be mistaken, but holding down on the wallpaper to animate it seems like an application of force touch.
    So it seems that these missing features are due to missing hardware, not so much Apple deliberately withholding features in the name of forced obsolescence.
