The first of these came earlier this week, on the 11th of July, when we looked over some of the basics.

iOS 11.4.1 brings USB Restricted Mode but it has a bug

Some features just can’t seem to wait for a grand release. That seems to be the case for Apple’s latest controversial security feature which was initially expected for iOS 12 in a few months. It seems, however, that pressing matters may have forced Apple to almost silently roll out its USB Restricted Mode feature in the new iOS 11.4.1 update.
