Apple Releases iOS 11.4.1

Recently, Apple has released iOS 11.4.1 with some important security features. The latest update includes USB Restricted Mode which was earlier used by law enforcement and private companies connecting to crack an iPhone’s passcode and evade Apple’s usual encryption safeguards.
 
You can now see a new toggle for USB Accessories in settings under Face ID & Passcode. The switch is off by default which means that if your device is locked for more than an hour iOS will not allow USB accessories to connect to the device which will result in switching off the cracking tool like GrayKey.
 
You can also toggle the option on in the settings to remove the hour limit.

The company is working regularly in increasing users privacy but this may put the company against the law enforcement and authorities who want to access the information stored in recovered or seized phones.
 
The company stated, “We’re constantly strengthening the security protections in every Apple product to help customers defend against hackers, identity thieves, and intrusions into their personal data.”
 
Along with the introduction of USB restriction mode, the company has also fixed a lot of bugs for Find My AirPods feature and syncing it with Exchange accounts.
