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

One of the last updates for iOS 11 was released by Apple this morning, brining a host of new fixes before the company moves on to iOS 12 completely. iPhone users running iOS 11.4 right now have been complaining in droves that battery life has suffered after the update.

The latest point update of iOS comes nearly a month after Apple had released iOS 11.4 with some major audio focused improvements. As now implemented, the feature is even more restrictive: When turned on, it will "prevent USB accessories from connecting when your [iPhone/iPad] has been locked for more than an hour".

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.


Tap Face ID & Passcode or Touch ID & Passcode depending on your device.

Since there's only a couple of months left for iOS 12 to drop, it is possible that iOS 11.4.1 is the last release from Apple for iOS 11 as the company switches its focus on finalising iOS 12 for release. Apple TV owners can also grab tvOS 11.4.1 today. Finally, the HomePod update "includes general improvements for stability and quality". The user maintains the only change to his device was the update to iOS 11.4.

The latest update to iOS brings a new feature called USB Restricted Mode that can prevent unauthorized access to the contents of your iPhone through the use of cracking devices that connect via the Lightning port. Those releases are likely to come this fall.
