Apple is consistently working on releasing smaller and subsequent updates following the launch of iOS 16. If you are hooked on updating the latest updates, chances are that you have heard of the new iOS Security Response 16.2 beta.
Besides this, Apple is also working on its iPadOS 16.2 betas, both of which are expected to integrate the compatible iOS and iPad models with the necessary security fix.
Although details about these new updates aren’t available yet, reports suggest that these new updates are security specific. There are also rumors that this new beta could very well not include any security update and will instead focus on demonstrating the new Rapid Security Response system.
This new release will be available to compatible iPhone users through the standard software update from the iPhone’s Settings app. The new iOS 16.2 Security Response beta is expected to be a 98.2 MB file size.
Installing the new update to the iPhone will upgrade the System’s iOS version to iOS 16.2 (a). Also, the users will have the option to get rid of the security response by visiting the iPhone Settings. Under that, the original iOS 16.2 beta 3 build will work as normal.
The new and upcoming iOS 16.2 update is expected to introduce a variety of upgrades, including that to the lock screen widget options, and even the always-on display.
Under the “Rapid Security Response” update, the feature immediately decouples the security patches from the current or upcoming software update to ensure a smoother user experience, especially after a security update.
This new feature will be available under Settings, under, Settings > General > Software Update > Automatic Updates. Under that, the users will have to disable the “Install Security Responses & System Files.”
Doing so will keep the security patches decoupled from the standard software updates that come along with the device.
