Apple iOS 11.4.1 officially adds USB Restricted Mode, blocking hacking tools

Open Settings tap Face ID & Passcode

Apple hasn't even listed any of the updates on its security update page.

It seems, however, that pressing matters may have forced Apple to nearly silently roll out its USB Restricted Mode feature in the new iOS 11.4.1 update. If you own a HomePod, it will automatically update itself to the latest software release without any user intervention.

There should be no reason why iOS 11.4.1 has caused issues on your device. If you go to Settings and check under Face ID & Passcode, you'll see a new toggle for USB Accessories. With the lock in place, data cannot be transferred to or from the Lightning port; it can only be used for device charging.

Depp allegedly punched Brooks twice in the left rib cage while he was screaming at him. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

At first we thought we would have to wait until iOS 12 this fall to see this feature, but here it is.

Tap the switch next to USB Accessories under Allow Access When Locked to put it in the white "off" position (if it's not there already) if you want USB Restricted Mode activated.

iOS 11.4.1 is available as an over-the-air update via the Settings app. watchOS 4.3.2 can be downloaded and installed through the Watch app on iOS. No release notes were provided for tvOS 11.4.1, but it likely includes small performance improvements and bug fixes. There's precious little question at this point that iOS 11 has been Apple's most problematic mobile software release in many years. As with most incremental updates, you can expect that other bugs have been squashed and that the overall stability of iOS has improved. Apple released iOS 11.4.1 today along with corresponding updates to macOS, watchOS and tvOS. Sometimes the company shifts its focus to the next major release (in this case, iOS 12) in the summer.
