The upcoming iOS 16 has a feature that will allow iPhone users to deploy security patches without a full iOS update, and they can also choose to roll back security updates.
The Rapid Security Response system in iOS 16 can install security patches without completely updating your iPhone, or even restarting it in some cases.
By default, Quick Security Responses are installed automatically, but Apple has implemented a way to remove them, MacRumors reports.
According to the support document, a user can remove the Rapid Security Response update by going to Settings, General, About, and then tapping Remove Security Update.
According to Apple, users can reinstall Rapid Security Response later or wait for it to be permanently installed as part of a standard software update.
“It’s not clear why Quick Security Response should be removed, but it’s nice that users will have the option,” the report said.
However, security experts recommend not turning off this feature unless users have a reason to do so, as cyber-attacks are on the rise.
Rapid Security Response is also reportedly coming to macOS in Ventura.
