Apple Enables USB Restricted Mode by Default in iOS 11.4.1

Apple Enables USB Restricted Mode by Default in iOS 11.4.1

You can, however, find USB Restricted Mode under the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app as "USB Accessories".

The toggle is off by default, which means that once your iOS device has been locked for more than an hour, the operating system will no longer allow USB access to connect to the device.

Apple has just released iOS 11.4.1, HomePod 11.4.1, tvOS 11.4.1 and watchOS 4.3.2 to all eligible devices.

The team of researchers at ElcomSoft have reiterated that once the USB Restricted Mode is enabled, it restricts all the data communications that occur over the Lightning port. There is detailed release note only for the iOS update, which mentions the USB Restricted Mode. All you need is to plug a USB accessory (even if it hasn't been paired with the iPhone before) into the Lightning port to bypass this security feature. This prevents the USB Restricted Mode lock from turning after the one-hour timer.

In iOS 11.4.1, and also in the current iOS 12 beta, if the Lightning port isn't used for an hour, it is deactivated.

Greyshift claimed it had already worked around that restriction but it might not have to, at least not for a while.

With the release of iOS 11.4.1, the procedure for properly seizing and transporting iPhone devices may be altered to include a compatible Lightning accessory. iPhone users running iOS 11.4 right now have been complaining in droves that battery life has suffered after the update. 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. "The ability to postpone USB Restricted Mode by connecting the iPhone to an untrusted USB accessory is probably nothing more than an oversight", Afonin admits. That seems to be the case for Apple's latest controversial security feature which was initially expected for iOS 12 in a few months.
