Apple released a new type of software update that improves security for its operating systems.
The rapid security responses are for iOS, iPadOS and macOS, on iPhone, iPad and Mac devices.
Apple said that the updates "deliver important security improvements between software updates."
For example, they provide improvements to the Safari web browser, the WebKit framework stack and other critical system libraries.

"They may also be used to mitigate some security issues more quickly, such as issues that might have been exploited or reported to exist ‘in the wild,’" Apple said.
The updates are delivered only for the latest versions of the operating systems. That begins with iOS 16.4.1, iPadOS 16.4.1 and macOS 13.3.1.
