How to download iOS 11.4.1 to your iPhone and iPad

iOS 11.4.1 users have the ability to flip the feature on or off under the Touch ID & Passcode or Face ID & Passcode settings menu, under USB Accessories.

Yesterday, Apple's iOS 11.4.1 update secured the USB Lightning port on iPhones and iPads.

What USB Restricted Mode does is to block data communications over the Lightning port an hour after the iPhone or iPad was last unlocked. The toggle is off by default, and that's how you'll want it in order to use the feature. "In other words, once the police officer seizes an iPhone, he or she would need to immediately connect that iPhone to a compatible USB accessory to prevent USB Restricted Mode lock after one hour", Afonin writes in a blog post while explaining the loophole.

U.S. stuns world health officials by opposing breastfeeding
Research has shown that mother's milk contains far more nutrients that are necessary for a baby's health than infant formula. They also sought to hinder World Health Organization efforts to provide lifesaving medications to undeveloped countries.

"What we discovered is that iOS will reset the USB Restrictive Mode countdown timer even if one connects the iPhone to an untrusted USB accessory", Afonin said. However, it turns out that there was an oversight in security, meaning that USB Restricted Mode can be bypassed by a simple accessory that Apple sells itself.

The iOS 11.4.1 upgrade is small by Apple standards - coming in at around 200MB - but it represents a big headache for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other organizations that want to gain access to someone else's phone because it kills off the most common route to bypassing the device's security. What's new in tvOS 11.4.1 This update includes general performance and stability improvements. "Prior to iOS 11.4.1, isolating the iPhone inside a Faraday bag and connecting it to a battery pack would be enough to safely transport it to the lab", he concludes. Elcomsoft is a company that makes forensic tools for governments and law enforcement, so it is in the company's interest to break this new lock. One user claims that before iOS 11.4 he was able to go a full day without charging his iPhone 6, but after the update, the phone only lasts about half a day.
