    Doesn't the M8 and M9 co-processor from the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 (respectively) allow you to raise or move your phone to wake it up? The 6th gen iPod, iPad Pros, and Air 2 have M8 and M9 processors too, so why can't they raise to wake?
    It's not super important, but I thought the M co-processors worked the same. Is this just another Apple feature they only give to their favorite child: the iPhone?

    Because its not necessary on an ipad ?

    With a SmartCover (90% of ipad user have one) the screen open automatically when you open the cover so, no need for this feature realy.

    Yeah I realize it really is not a necessary feature, but would having it take much effort? And if the iPads CAN do it, why not just put the feature on... just cause?
    Again, I don't really care about it that much, I'm really just curious as to "why not?"

    Probably because there isn't a good use case for it.

    Or, Apple will add it later to a newer iPad, and not make it a feature available to older models...

    I would see use in this, I sit my iPP (12.9) in the keyboard position, so when I pick it up, I now press in the home button, then leave my finger resting on the unpressed home button for it to unlock. Raise to wake, would mean I would be able to pick it up just resting my finger on the home button.

    It "doesn't work" because it was never implemented. This isn't a bug, this is a feature that purposely wasn't added to the iPad.

    I think the OP is asking why the feature wasn't implemented on the iPads.

    Seems like it's not one they feel would fit in with the use cases they see for the iPad (vs an iPhone).

    Or, it is a feature they decided to hold back for future models even though the current is capable. For example, why does Hey Siri only work with an iPP 12.9 when charging, but works all the time with the iPP 9.7, 6s and 6s+?

    Any differences in the chips amongst those?

    doesn't the ipad still have the slow touch ID sensor? they probably think it's not needed there.

    and it would be weird to raise such a big device, just to see if there are new notifications and then putting it down again.

    2 things:

    1. The slow touch ID, is still faster than one can bring a device from far away (picking it up) to close to you in reading position (I do it now, I press in the button at full stretch, it is unlocked by the time I put it on my lap).

    2. It doesn't have to be just for new notifications, it can be for use. It triggers an "awake" of the device, so it is now in ready mode, for unlocking or notifications.

    I'd like to see it included. I don't always have a cover on my device and I've gotten annoyed sometimes when I pick it up expecting it to come on and then realize that the iPad doesn't have this handy feature.
