Apple has blocked GrayKey, an iPhone hacking device used by law enforcement. The company designed iOS 12 with protection against it.
Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to talk about Tim Berners-Lee’s push to make a new world wide web, plus look at a report saying there’s an easy workaround to iOS 11.4.1’s USB Restricted Mode.
iOS 11.4.1’s USB Restricted Mode blocks anyone from using the Lightning port to hack into your iPhone or iPad, but a security researcher says it’s stunningly easy to work around.
But Motherboard reports that Grayshift is confident that its device is future-proof.
iOS 11.4.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has a new security feature called USB Restricted Mode designed to keep hackers out of your iOS device. Here’s how to find the setting and, if you need to, change it.
When iOS 11.4 ships it’ll include a security feature that disables the Lightning port if the iPhone hasn’t been unlocked for seven days, and that won’t likely sit well with law enforcement agencies.
