Apple has released Rapid Security Response (c) for iOS 16.5.1 and macOS 13.4.1 with important security fixes.
Recently, the tech giant released Rapid Security Response (RSR) for iOS 16.5.1 and macOS 13.4.1. However, the company pulled the updates shortly after because several users reported a Safari bug that prevented that access to some websites after installing the latest RSR updates.
Starting with iOS 16.4, Apple introduced RSR updates for iPhone, iPad, and Mac to frequently push updates that exclusively include security fixes so users do not have to install the full update again.
