IOS 11.4 Battery Drain Problem: Does iOS 11.4.1 Fix It?

IOS 11.4 Battery Drain Problem: Does iOS 11.4.1 Fix It?

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.

iOS 11.4.1 is mostly bug fixes, reports 9to5Mac, but it does make the Find My AirPods feature more reliable. Here's how to enable this feature.

Something as simple as a Lightning to USB adapter can prevent your iOS device from going into Restricted Mode. Notable in the new build is USB Restrictive Mode.

Not only does it require law enforcement to act quickly and to have the requisite hardware on hand, but it only works within the window: once USB Restricted Mode has kicked in, you can't undo it without the passcode. So it wouldn't be hard for police officers to seize an iPhone when it's been recently unlocked, and connect it to a Lightning adapter, preventing the USB Restricted Mode from fully activating, he says.

For more information on the USB Restricted Mode and how to toggle it on or off, Apple has a guide here. There are people who'd prefer unlocking their phones every time someone connects an accessory to the Lightning port instead of being subjected to the flawed restrictions.

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. They have already issued an update of their own.

However, if you aren't actually happy with the release, and you want to go back to an earlier version of iOS, then be aware that Apple is now only signing iOS 11.4, which means that you will only be able to downgrade to iOS 11.4.

Apple curiously didn't include the security in the release notes, probably to not alert "interested parties".

We will have to wait and see how Apple responds to the situation. 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 iOS 11.4.1 upgrade is small by Apple standards - coming in at around 200MB - but it represents a big headache for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other organizations that want to gain access to someone else's phone because it kills off the most common route to bypassing the device's security.
