Apple starts testing Rapid Security Response Update system

last month, Apple has released a beta version of iOS 16.2, in which many interesting innovations appeared, one of which was the Rapid Security Response system, which allows you to quickly receive and install security patches for iOS separately from the new firmware, even if even if If the user turned off the Auto Complement of the OS. The first update of this format was released on November 16 for users of the beta versions of iOS 16.2 and the iPados 16.2. True, then the update contained any corrections, since the company only tests Rapid Security Response.

And recently a second test patch was released – iOS 16.2 (b) (20c7750490F). At the moment, it is unclear whether the update contains any correction or is it another Apple test that wants to check the behavior of the system in real conditions.

Only one thing is known – when the function becomes available to everyone, Apple smartphones will receive critical security patches with a quick installation through it, which will not require loading of several hundred megabytes of update from the user.
