    Secret only because they gave away some of the hardware features of the new iPhones; and Apple likes to surprise us. Since some/most of newly announced features are hardware dependent, they won't be coming to the iPad this year; like Face ID and the new animoji app in iMessages that depend on the new sensors and dedicated processor in the iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10).

    It's fine, I bought the Ipad just to read books, don't need animoji's, Face ID or any other fancy features, even though they're cool, my questions here are more of an Apple world learning mood.

    It's always good to keep an eye on the new stuff, even if you don't need it now. Eventually most of the new stuff will spread to the entire iOS line.

    Anyway, there are lots of other iOS 11 goodies coming. Stay tuned.

    That or existing features in the upcoming public release that have not yet surfaced. Especially with the two iPhone 8 models and the iPhone X. There will also be regular iOS 11 updates over the next year.

    When you say "upcoming public release" you refer to the official 9/19 release?

    Yes. Some of these new features may only work on the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X models and hence won't show up on earlier models.
