This is for iPhone, iPad, and Mac
Rapid Security Responses deliver significant security improvements between software updates.
Rapid Security Responses are a new software release for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. They deliver important security improvements between software updates; for example, improvements to the Safari web browser, the WebKit framework stack, or other critical system libraries. They may also be used to mitigate some security issues more quickly, such as issues that might have been exploited or reported to exist “in the wild.”
New Rapid Security Responses are delivered only for the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, and macOS — beginning with iOS 16.4.1, iPadOS 16.4.1, and macOS 13.3.1.
By default, your device allows Rapid Security Responses to be applied automatically and, if necessary, will prompt you to restart your device. To check your device settings:
On iPhone or iPad head to:
- Settings > General > Software Update > Automatic Updates
Then make sure that Security Responses & System Files are turned on. Refer to the below image:
On a Mac head to:
- Apple menu > System Settings >General > Software Update > Show Details button next to Automatic Updates
Then make sure that Install Security Responses and system files are turned on.
When a Rapid Security Response has been applied, a letter appears after the software version number, as in this example: iOS 16.4.1 (a).
Suppose you choose to turn off this setting or not to apply Rapid Security Responses when they are available. In that case, your device will receive relevant fixes or mitigations when they have included in a subsequent software update.

Even in such technical lines as engineering, about 15% of one’s financial success is due one’s technical knowledge and about 85% is due to skill in human engineering, to personality and the ability to lead people.Dale Carnegie
