IPhone SE, iPhone 6s suffer fast battery drain on iOS 11.4

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

Aside from this, iOS 11.4.1 includes bug fixes for the Find My AirPods feature and syncing with Exchange accounts.

iPhone and iPad owners, this one is for you!

The latest point update of iOS comes nearly a month after Apple had released iOS 11.4 with some major audio focused improvements.

The new feature will not prevent the phone from being charged, but if you want to unlock or transfer any data to or from the device, you will need to enter the phone's passcode on the touchscreen. That seems to be the case for Apple's latest controversial security feature which was initially expected for iOS 12 in a few months. Significant but not listed: USB Restricted Mode, a change originally included in the iOS 12 beta that makes it more hard for anyone, including authorities, to break into the iPhone through the Lightning port.

This will likely be Apple's last updates for iOS 11 as the company shifts focus to iOS 12 and future updates. iOS 12 is set for release this fall bringing a host of UI changes and features. 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".

Today, the company released iOS 11.4.1, watchOS 4.3.2, and tvOS 11.4.1 to the general public. macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra is still listed as being in beta.

Apple is rolling out iOS 11.4.1 for iPhones and iPads everywhere. As with most incremental updates, you can expect that other bugs have been squashed and that the overall stability of iOS has improved.
