iOS 11.1 beta 3: Passcode is Now Required to Trust a Computer

UPDATE: This feature also shows up in iOS 11.0.3

New security feature in iOS 11.1 beta 3:

Passcode, if enabled, is now required to trust a computer.

I don’t remember seeing this message on the phone before other than the usual “Do you want to trust this computer” message.

It is a good security measure to have this on. I know a lot of people who don’t want to be bothered with entering the passcode every time they need to unlock the iPhone; they also think Touch ID is hassle.

As usual, we always warn against installing major macOS (formerly Mac OS X and OS X) on essential productions computer. Yes, we’re talking about you, a recording studio that shall not be named here. 😬
