How to use USB Restricted Mode on your iPhone or iPad

Apple released iOS 11.4.1 today along with corresponding updates to macOS, watchOS and tvOS. You can, however, find USB Restricted Mode under the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app as "USB Accessories".

iOS 11.4.1 should improve the reliability of AirPods, along with syncing Mail, Contacts, and Noes with Exchange accounts. watchOS 4.3.2 and tvOS 11.4.1 should just have general fixes and improvements. As now implemented, the feature is even more restrictive: When turned on, it will "prevent USB accessories from connecting when your [iPhone/iPad] has been locked for more than an hour". Significant but not listed: USB Restricted Mode, a change originally included in the iOS 12 beta that makes it more hard for anyone, including authorities, to break into the iPhone through the Lightning port.

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

The FBI famously paid Cellebrite over a million dollars to break a legal impasse between itself and Apple over the phone of San Bernardino shooter (it found nothing of value on the phone). USB Protected mode is the biggest new feature which is aimed at making it harder for hackers to access your iPhone's data via USB. But for now at least, iPhones, with this update, are locked down.

Of course, this being Apple, there is no mention of the new feature in its release notes. And very little information about how it works.

Alongside iPhones and iPads, Apple also released an update to bump the HomePod software version to 11.4.1. Get patching, Cupertino fans, by checking for software updates and installing them.
