How to download iOS 11.4.1 to your iPhone and iPad

Apple hasn't even listed any of the updates on its security update page.

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. If you own a HomePod, it will automatically update itself to the latest software release without any user intervention. Camera issues and battery drain problems stemming from iOS 11.4 have been patched in the update.

Recently, we've seen the emergence of a number of devices, including the GrayBox, that allow third parties to gather data from your iPhone or iPad through the Lightning port without having to unlock your device beforehand.

USB Restricted Mode can be found in Settings Face ID (or Touch ID) & Passcode USB Accessories.

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

In addition to appearing in the finished version of iOS 11.4.1, it's also available in the current beta versions of iOS 12. No release notes were provided for tvOS 11.4.1, but it likely includes small performance improvements and bug fixes. If you have taken the opportunity to upgrade your compatible device to iOS 11.4.1 and immediately regret that decision for one reason or another, then it is possible to downgrade the firmware.

Apple today officially pressed that big ol' red button marked "Disseminate", and iOS 11.4.1 started to roll out. Sometimes the company shifts its focus to the next major release (in this case, iOS 12) in the summer.
