Some slight errors in the comparison table.
"Maintain zoom when changing image in playback"
X-T1 does this if you Zoom in (e.g. hit focus assist to move to AF point) then roll the front command dial to roll through photos. I use this often to compare AF on eyes across shots so I know it's there. "Unlike the X-T1, which lets you punch in to a 100% view of the AF point, but doesn't maintain it if you switch between images," Not true, maybe was true on old software.
X-T1 has 7 assignable buttons now, not 6. The Movie record button can be remapped.
Also the new advanced AF tracking modes aren't mentioned, the X-T1 and X-Pro2 both have these but X-Pro1 doesn't. These are pretty important IMO.
Also from page 2, there are 4 metering modes now, not 3.

I am not dumping photos from a reliable SD card onto a spinning disk and then wiping the card.

Good product though.

Current setup works well:
Fuji X100 -> 32GB Eye-Fi mobi -> iPhone 5s with iOS 8 -> iCloud photos in the cloud.
They automatically appear on the iPad and Mac, if someone pinches my gear when travelling I still have all my pics.

The front facing camera limitation is a well known method to limit installation on incompatible devices.

The new iPad has 1GB ram. The iPad 2 has 512mb. The original iPad only has 256MB. iPhoto needs ram to load up a 19MP file and edit it, provide undo levels etc. That is the real reason for the limitation. When you multitask on an iPad 1 it keeps having to reload everything, it was ram crippled from day one unfortunately. I know this is frustrating, but what can you do.
