USB Restricted Mode 'doesn't work' for securing #iPhone data
#iOS 11.4.1 adds “USB Restricted Mode.” #Apple aims to prevent law enforcement from using plug-in devices that crack passcodes.

But, some Russian researchers claim, it’s easily defeatable. You just need an inexpensive dongle (uh, “inexpensive” by Apple standards, I guess).
