Apple has released iOS 11.4.1 update along with updates for the HomePod (11.4.1), tvOS (11.4.1 and watchOS (4.3.2). As of now, only the iOS update has received a detailed release note. The update now brings with it a 'USB Restricted Mode' which disallows third parties to break into a user’s iPhone. The USB Restricted Mode stays on by default. If a user wishes to disable it, they will have head to the security settings and turn on the toggle to allow for “USB Accessories”. The feature, basically, locks down the data connection over the Lightning port one hour after the last time your iOS device is unlocked.
