re: APUs that don't work at altitude.

I am curious as what is done differently on an APU used on ETOPS planes
(which can operate anytime anywhere) and APUs that won't work at
altitude.

Is it a question of the cold temperature or the lower pressure at
altitude ?

In either case, what is done on an ETOPs rated APU to counter this
problem/difficulty ?
