IOS 11.4.1 is out with fresh fixes for iPhone and iPad

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. Camera issues and battery drain problems stemming from iOS 11.4 have been patched in the update. It's only really a bug fix release and doesn't look to introduce any new functionality that should immediately break the performance of the device.

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

Essentially, after one hour of non-use, an iOS 11.4.1 handheld will not talk to any device plugged into its charging port - other than to receive power to charge its battery - until a valid passcode is entered via the screen.

iOS 11.4.1 users have the ability to flip the feature on or off under the Touch ID & Passcode or Face ID & Passcode settings menu, under 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.

At first we thought we would have to wait until iOS 12 this fall to see this feature, but here it is.

Apple is rolling out iOS 11.4.1 for iPhones and iPads everywhere. The user maintains the only change to his device was the update to iOS 11.4.

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.
