To install the first “rapid security response” that was introduced in a new update to Apple iOS 16.4.1, you can follow some simple steps, which were monitored by the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, which start by going to “Settings” on your device, then click on “General”. and “Software Update”.
It should say “iOS 16.4.1 (a) Security Response” and below it should be a button that says “Download and Install.”
You can then press this button and then Reboot Now, your device will turn off and turn back on again with the update installed.
This should only take a few seconds, so it’s much faster than regular iOS, iPadOS, and macOS updates, and when it completes, it will read your operating system as iOS 16.4.1(a), iPadOS 16.4.1(a), or macOS 13.3. 1 (a).
Your device settings will also be adjusted to ensure that any future Security Rapid Response is installed automatically.
To check this, go back to the “Software Update” section and click on “Automatic Updates”.
There should be a switch next to the option labeled “Security Responses and System Files,” which should be in the green position, and even with this option turned on, you may be prompted to restart your device to complete future setups.
But if you disable it, the device will still receive the latest security fixes in the next software update, and some may also be installed automatically even if it’s turned off.
It is worth noting that Apple released the first update of a new type of security update for iPhone, iPad and Mac recently, called “Rapid Security Response”, as these software releases aim to provide important security improvements to devices between operating system updates.
