Apple iPhone USB Restricted Mode can be bypassed

Updated: 10 Jul 2018 12:20 PM

California [United States], July 10 (ANI): With the rollout of the iOS 11.4.1, Apple made it harder for law enforcement to bypass the USB Restricted Mode. However, researchers have found a loophole.

The researchers were able to reset the one-hour counter for as long as you plug a USB accessory into the iPhone's Lightning port, The Verge reported.

It is to be noted that one can't break the USB Restricted Mode once it is already engaged. However, the iOS will reset the countdown timer if one immediately connects the iPhone to a compatible USB accessory. (ANI)
