It is unfortunate that Apple relies upon Bluetooth and Wifi for connecting various add-ons. Each of these methods transmits (and therefore can be intercepted) signal to/from add-on. Here is a good case for 'wires' that can be disconnected physically- disabling the 'port' in question.

Now if Apple were 'really' serious about security, there would be a mini-ethernet (mini-RJ45) socket right next to that usb charge/transfer soccket.
