Apple has released iOS 11.4.1 which contains USB Restricted Mode. "We were not able to find recent stats, but even two years ago an average user unlocked their iPhone at least 80 times a day".

According to a new report from The Verge, USB Restricted Mode, a new iOS feature that protects unauthorized access of the data on your iOS device, has a glaring omission that would make it quite easy for someone to beat in many scenarios. In a blog post he said a $39 device can "fool USB Restricted Mode". However, it is possible to prevent the phone from going into Restricted Mode at all as long as you've got a Lightning USB accessory to plug in. Apple says that it added USB Restricted Mode to iOS to increase device security against a known means of hacking, which notably has been used by law enforcement personnel to extract the contents of criminal suspects' phones without their permission. The $9 Lightning-to-audio-jack adapter doesn't work, but Apple's Lightning-to-USB-3.0 adapter does.

iOS 11.4.1 (and iOS 12) include new line of defence against a type of security hack aimed at brute-forcing access to iPhones and iPads. "Your accessory then remains connected, even if your device is subsequently locked". The feature is aimed at rendering third-party boxes which try to brute force into a locked iPhone useless.

'Appreciate your allies, you don't have many,' Tusk tells Trump
The funding area of its website states that the U.S. accounts for two-thirds (67%) of defence spending of the alliance. He wrote: "The U.S.is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them".


As a concession to user convenience, the restrictions on the Lightning port only comes into effect if the Lightning port is not now being used, and the device has not been unlocked for more than a hour.

A growing number of iPhone and iPad owners have voiced their complaints on the official Apple support forums regarding a battery drain issue due to iOS 11.4.

Afonin notes that the apparent loophole is "probably nothing more than an oversight", but it's a pretty important oversight given the amount of noise Apple was making about the new security feature in the first place. Another user having similar issues claims that the iPhone was updated to iOS 11.4, charged to 100%, rebooted and left in standby for four hours. The only way for Apple to now fix this flaw would be to require authentication of all iPhone accessories, but this likely won't happen anytime soon.
