This assumption is backed up by the change in iOS 12.3 that physically powers off the USB port after the phone has been locked for a time (30 minutes?)
When dealing with hardware “off” is not always quite as absolute as one might wish, but I believe this puts an enormous crimp in their attack vectors.
The most interesting part of this story is that we get to see first hand the cat and mouse game that is just another day at the office for state sponsored cyber warfare.

Copper has resistance, light doesn’t. And someone tell me why an iPhone would need a 40 gigabit connections, hmmmm.
