A Game-Changing New iPhone Feature Is Coming to iOS 16

A Game-Changing New iPhone Feature Is Coming to iOS 16

The Worldwide Developers Conference, one of the year’s most major software events, saw Apple unveil iOS 16 this week (WWDC). iOS 16 will be released this autumn, and it will include a number of exciting new iPhone features, one of which might be game-changing in terms of security.

In recent years, Apple, like many of its competitors—look at Microsoft and Google—has released a spate of emergency security fixes.

Although Apple has lately offered security-only patches, these updates are sometimes delivered as part of a broader iPhone point upgrade with new features. When a security weakness is already being exploited to attack iPhones, it’s vital that these remedies come on time.

Even if you have automatic updates turned on, installing iOS upgrades on iPhones might take a long time. The simplest way to stay secure is to watch for iOS updates and manually install them.

However, beginning with iOS 16, it seems that iPhone owners who want or need real-time security updates will be able to get them via a new feature dubbed Rapid Security Response. Starting with iOS 16, this new iPhone function will automatically apply crucial security updates, regardless of version changes.

The new option is already accessible in the iOS 16 beta version under Install System and Data Files in the Automatic Updates menu, despite the fact that it was just mentioned in passing during WWDC. The details are sparse, however this will result in patches being automatically applied to iPhones (without the need to reset your phone) and outside of needed version upgrades.

The capacity is game-changing for iPhone security, according to Sean Wright, a major application security engineer, but it also fits a bigger industry shift. “Automation is vital for security because it facilitates adoption by removing the need for users to do anything.”

“This is how modern software is developed and distributed,” Wright explains, “smaller updates mean there are less things that might go wrong.”

Apple’s iOS 16 is coming out in a few months, and with game-changing features like these, it’ll be an exciting time—if it works in practice.
