Key Info Missing from Smartphone Tethering Guide for iOS

Could we please update to include?

2. Smartphone


Since iOS11, to improve security, iPhones will terminate USB data connections after one hour by default. This is easily changed by going to:

Settings > Touch ID/Face ID & Passcode > USB Accessories > ON

I wasted many hours trying to fix the constant disconnecting, would like to save everyone else the trouble.


Thank you for your time on this
