Apple might soon release an update for the iPad and iPhone that disables the Lightning port after the phone has been locked for 7 days. The new security measure was discovered by software company Elcomsoft which found it in a beta of iOS 11.4. The feature should make it harder for the police or secret services to retrieve information from locked iOS devices.
