Apple releases iOS 11.4.1 and blocks passcode cracking tools used by police - The Verge
Apple today released iOS 11.4.1, and while most of us are already looking ahead to all the new stuff coming in iOS 12, this small update contains an important new security feature: USB Restricted Mode. Apple has added protections against the USB devices being used by law enforcement and private companies that connect over Lightning to crack an iPhone’s passcode and evade Apple’s usual encryption safeguards.
If you go to Settings and check under Face ID (or Touch ID) & Passcode, you’ll see a new toggle for USB Accessories. By default, the switch is off. This means that once your iPhone or iPad has been locked for over an hour straight, iOS will no longer allow USB accessories to connect to the device — shutting out cracking tools like GrayKey as a result. If you’ve got accessories that you want to continue working after your iPhone has been sitting locked for awhile, you can toggle the option on to remove the hour limit.
Apple’s wording is a bit confusing. You should leave the toggle disabled if you want your iPhone to be most secure.

Daring Fireball: iOS 11.4.1 Blocks USB Passcode Cracking Tools

Great news and an elegant solution.

Apple releases iOS 11.4.1 with USB Restricted Mode | Ars Technica
The iOS update also fixes bugs with AirPods and Exchange mail servers.
As usual, this iOS release also includes security updates. However, Apple had not released the details on its security page at the time of this posting, but expect them to appear sometime soon. Significant but not listed: USB Restricted Mode, a change originally included in the iOS 12 beta that makes it more difficult for anyone, including authorities, to break into the iPhone through the Lightning port.
You'll now find a toggle switch labeled "USB Accessories" in the Touch ID & Passcode section of the Settings app labeled "USB Accessories." It's off by default. A caption explains:
Unlock iPhone to allow USB accessories to connect when it has been more than an hour since your iPhone was unlocked.
At first we thought we would have to wait until iOS 12 this fall to see this feature, but here it is.

How to use USB Restricted Mode on your iPhone or iPad
USB Restricted Mode brings a little extra security to your iPhone or iPad. Here's how you enable it.
While Apple has been testing it since the later beta versions of iOS 11.4, with the release of iOS 11.4.1, USB Restricted Mode is now available to the iPhone-using public at large. This new mode, which is buried under your passcode settings, adds additional security to your iOS device by preventing USB accessories to connect with your iPhone or iPad if the device has been locked for more than one hour.
Recently, we've seen the emergence of a number of devices, including the GrayBox, that allow third parties to gather data from your iPhone or iPad through the Lightning port without having to unlock your device beforehand. While these devices are ostensibly designed for law enforcement, they are still taking advantage of a security hole that anyone could theoretically exploit. This means that Apple has a responsibility to plug this particular hole, despite the protestations of law enforcement.

How to Enable Messages in iCloud on iPhone or iPad
iMessages in iCloud is a feature of the Messages app which lets you sync all iMessages through iCloud to other devices using the same Apple ID, offering some other nice benefits in that process. You may have thought that was already how iMessage worked on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, but it turns out that’s not exactly the case. Instead, Messages in iCloud is a new feature that is available from iOS 11.4 onward.
This article will explain what Messages in iCloud is, as well as show you how to enable the feature on your iPhone or iPad.

Messages in iCloud
I immediately turned on iCloud storage for Messages with the latest iOS update. I liked this succinct summary by Paul Horowitz over at OS X Daily. That’s a lot of storage moved to iCloud.

Apple Continues to Lock Down the iPhone — MacSparky
9 to 5 Mac is reporting that in the latest iOS 11.4 beta, Apple's added a feature that turns off lightning cable access to an iPhone that hasn't been unlocked in a week. There are several rumors of black-box style security devices that can break open an iPhone through the lightning cable. This appears to be Apple's response. I like that Apple continues to attempt to protect user data. I understand the law and order crowd's desire to have a back door into the iPhone for the good guys but I agree with Apple that you can't make a back door that the bad guys can't also ultimately use.

Why do I need underscores in swift? - Stack Overflow
Really good tutorial explaining optional function parameter names / labels. I.e. the underscores you sometimes see in function argument declarations and why sometimes you can use a function without naming or labelling the argument values you are passing.
