IPhone SE, iPhone 6s suffer fast battery drain on iOS 11.4

Apple releases iOS 11.4.1 with USB Restricted Mode iPhone SE, iPhone 6s suffer fast battery drain on iOS 11.4

In order to let the accessory connect, you have to unlock the iPhone with a passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. The bug is alleged to reset the one-hour counter available within the latest iOS update as long as a USB accessory is connected to the iOS device before the toggle triggers the lock.

Yesterday, Apple's iOS 11.4.1 update secured the USB Lightning port on iPhones and iPads.

With the lock in place, data cannot be transferred to or from the Lightning port; it can only be used for device charging. After all, if you're listening to music with your iPhone hooked up to a USB audio interface, you don't want the music to stop after an hour, and to re-authenticate before you can continue. However, if you want the update right away, you can use the Home app on your iPhone to do so. 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.

Restricted Mode is activated if the iPhone or iPad is left locked for more than hour. It also doesn't work if USB Restricted Mode has already been triggered (past the one-hour mark).

While Apple might fix the flaw in the next iOS 11.4 release or in the iOS 12, Afonin doesn't consider it as a severe vulnerability and calls it an "oversight". "According to our tests, this effectively disables USB Restricted Mode countdown timer, and allows safely transporting the seized device to the lab", claims Afonin.

Aside from this, iOS 11.4.1 includes bug fixes for the Find My AirPods feature and syncing with Exchange accounts.

Security researchers at ElcomSoft discovered the security hole, which can be found in iOS 11.4.1. However, this doesn't mean that the USB connectivity with an Apple device is entirely safe. 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.

Based on Apple's previous update cycles, it is possible that these are the last updates for these operating systems before iOS 12 and its cousins arrive later this year.
