Apple has added a new security feature to iOS 11.4.1 that makes it harder for hackers - as well as law enforcement and government agencies - to unlock your iPhone. However, mobile forensics firm Elcomsoft found that this new security feature can be easily bypassed with just about any Lightning port accessory.
This is how Apple came up with the USB Restricted Mode, which disables the Lightning port data connection after the iPhone hasn't been unlocked for seven days. You can, however, find USB Restricted Mode under the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app as "USB Accessories".
"What we discovered is that iOS will reset the USB Restrictive Mode countdown timer even if one connects the iPhone to an untrusted USB accessory, one that has never been paired to the iPhone before (well, in fact, the accessories do not require pairing at all)".

The collisions between Ferrari and Mercedes drivers in two of the past three Formula 1 races are "unfair" and "not funny", says Niki Lauda.
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.
The bug is alleged to reset the one-hour counter available within the latest iOS update as long as a USB accessory is connected to the iOS device before the toggle triggers the lock.

But Hutchinson, and the US ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, gave upbeat assessments of the upcoming meetings. I'll leave it to special counsel Robert S.
Apple's iPhones are extremely secure once you've used TouchID or FaceID and a passcode to lock them down, but there was a loophole with specialized USB tools plugging into the lightning port. You might also see an alert asking you to unlock your device to use accessories. When you connect the iPhone to a computer, the two devices exchange cryptographic keys and establish trust. Users on iOS 11.3.1 or lower are advised to stay where they are.
Now, Apple should be testing iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12 exclusively, as you shouldn't expect to see anymore iOS 11 updates.
Apple is working away on iOS 12 at the moment, but it's still pushing out updates for iOS 11. Another user having similar issues claims that the iPhone was updated to iOS 11.4, charged to 100%, rebooted and left in standby for four hours.

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