Have you considered a 3rd party file manager app like FileBrowser or FileExplorer? I use FileBrowser for Business and like it, it can now access attached external storage.
Didn’t know about those - thanks, I’ll give FileBrowser a try.

a way of preventing a iOS device being powered off without entering a passcode first
Yes! This would make stealing iDevices even more difficult!
EDIT: With Touch ID and Face ID it won't even be a problem for the existing user base - and if someone absolutely won't want this, there should be a setting for that in Code & Security. So simple, really.

I would like to see wired tethering/hotspot support just like you can do with a Mac.
Afaik, this has been available ever since Apple added tethering.

At the very least, I know iOS 5 has USB tethering. I remember that because I got annoyed with my work desktop tethering to my iPhone when all I want is to charge my phone.

I think you might have misunderstood. I meant wired tethering iPhone with iPad not Mac.

Got it. Thought you meant USB tethering on LTE iPads (which does work).

Was curious to see what would happen. Looks like the framework might be there but there's a problem with DHCP.

Would tethering be quite a bit more battery efficient than wifi hotspot? If so, I would also find that useful.
it would be better for the iPhone since the iPad will charging it when using wired tethering. But it would be worse for the iPad since it’s draining the battery charging the iPhone.

I've still got an iPhone 7 so between the two, the iPad has more power to spare which actually makes this scenario ideal. :p
