Apple Releases tvOS 11.4.1 for Apple TV [Download]”

You can, however, find USB Restricted Mode under the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app as "USB Accessories". This countdown can be reset by simply plugging in Apple's Lightning to USB 3.0 adaptor.

Apple has just released iOS 11.4.1, HomePod 11.4.1, tvOS 11.4.1 and watchOS 4.3.2 to all eligible devices.

If however someone does get to a phone within that hour period, they can shove in a USB accessory and prevent the smartphone from going into restricted mode until they have a chance to attach a cracking box later on. The way it works is that when an hour has lapsed without the iPhone or iPad being unlocked with a passcode, the Lightning-USB connection will disable any data transfer. The resetting of the built-in feature works even with an untrusted USB accessory, one that has never been paired with the device before. "In other words, once the police officer seizes an iPhone, he or she would need to immediately connect that iPhone to a compatible USB accessory to prevent USB Restricted Mode lock after one hour", Afonin writes in a blog post while explaining the loophole.

The research team isn't sure if third-party adaptors have a similar effect, but this same method can't be achieved with Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm adaptor.

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.

Security researchers at ElcomSoft discovered the security hole, which can be found in iOS 11.4.1. No release notes were provided for tvOS 11.4.1, but it likely includes small performance improvements and bug fixes. The device can then be accessed once again through USB. Law enforcement and private companies could leverage the loophole and design new hardware to continue to crack passcodes through the Lightning port.
