Some iOS users report that 11.4 update triggers excessive battery drain

Enter your passcode tap switch to Off position

The update includes a new feature called "USB Restricted Mode" that will disable a data connection from the iPhone's charging/data port at the bottom of the device after one hour of being locked by default.

Computer security forensics firm ElcomSoft has found a $39 device - one Apple sells on its on website - that runs contrary to Apple's instructions, fooling the restricted mode and giving access to anyone using the device. One user claims that before iOS 11.4 he was able to go a full day without charging his iPhone 6, but after the update, the phone only lasts about half a day. While the companies behind devices like the GrayBox have previously said that they can beat this new USB Restricted Mode, we'll have to wait and see whether or not that's true and what's more, what Apple will do to respond. Once an iPhone has been locked, a countdown begins before USB Restricted Mode activates.

You'll now find a toggle switch labeled "USB Accessories" in the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app labeled "USB Accessories".

USB Restricted Mode is created to shut off access to data on an iPhone or iPad when new USB accessories are plugged into the Lightning port, as long as it's been more than an hour since you last unlocked your iPhone.

Connect the iPhone to a compatible Lightning accessory (such as the official Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter). Does downloading and installing the next version of the mobile operating system, iOS 11.4.1, fix it? There are people who'd prefer unlocking their phones every time someone connects an accessory to the Lightning port instead of being subjected to the flawed restrictions. However, this doesn't mean that the USB connectivity with an Apple device is entirely safe. The issue occurs regardless of if users have recently replaced their device's battery - some iPhone owners were told that they should get their battery replaced even after recently getting a replacement.

A really interesting tidbit from the ElcomSoft report is that since iOS 11.4, Grayshift's boxes are already weakened significantly.

Apple hasn't commented yet, but we can assume that a patch will be landing soon.

Another user pointed out that the iPhone's Settings apps shows that the Personal Hotspot is using up nearly 50 percent of the device's battery life even when the user has never activated it. Apple released iOS 11.4.1 today along with corresponding updates to macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
