Apple releases iOS 11.4.1 with USB Restricted Mode

Apple also today released security updates for.

iOS 11.4.1 is mostly bug fixes, reports 9to5Mac, but it does make the Find My AirPods feature more reliable. It's available to the same devices as iOS 11.4-the iPhone 5S and later, the iPad Air and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, and 2015 iPod touch. This could be of particular interest to the many, many people out there who have complained that Apple's recent iOS 11.4 update has resulted in excessive battery drain on their iPhones.

If you haven't already installed Apple's iOS 11.4 update, you might want to wait for iOS 11.4.1 to be released in the coming weeks. However, Apple had not released the details on its security page at the time of this posting, but expect them to appear sometime soon.

At any rate, USB Restricted Mode functions by preventing USB devices from connecting to your iPhone or iPad, and yes, that includes Lightning-powered accessories.

Even if forensic engineers are able to stop the device they're trying to break into from entering USB Restricted Mode, Elcomsoft noted that since iOS 11.4, cracking devices such as Grayshift's GrayKey are limited to just one passcode guess per ten minutes. With the lock in place, data cannot be transferred to or from the Lightning port; it can only be used for device charging.

Since there's only a couple of months left for iOS 12 to drop, it is possible that iOS 11.4.1 is the last release from Apple for iOS 11 as the company switches its focus on finalising iOS 12 for release. After almost a year of dealing with buggy iPhones and iPads, iOS 12 is already a breath of fresh air in is current beta state.
