That's pretty smart actually. I wonder if it would be a good idea for me to buy an iPod touch for testing? It looks like it has everything I need but for a much cheaper price. Is it missing anything important that an iPhone has other than phone calls? I need to be able to test that the app correctly pauses audio when receiving an incoming call, but maybe I can test the same sort of audio interruption by pressing the Siri button on the iPod (assuming that's what happens?)
When I think about it, I use my Google Pixel 3a in the same way that you use your iPod: I never make phone calls (VoIP is good enough), and I restrict connectivity to WIFI to save money. It doesn't bother me that nobody can contact me while I'm out on a walk, because I don't want to be distracted then anyway.
