One of the hallmarks of the Cupertino company is, without a doubt, the updates, and that is that the number of these shows a fact, and that is that Apple cares a lot about offering the best software, and therefore, the best possible experience to all its users. Well, yesterday he released a somewhat different, but really important update. Keep reading that we tell you everything in this post.
Something happened yesterday that until now it was unprecedented within Appleand it is that the rapid response security updates. Surely when you hear this you wonder what these updates really consist of, well, Apple since iOS 16, has the possibility of being able to launch updates to its software in which they introduce security measures without actually having to release a new version of your operating system. That is to say, if in iOS 15 Apple had wanted to introduce security measures into its software, it would have had to launch one more version of its operating system, in this case it would have had to be iOS 15.4.2, however, now Apple instead of release iOS 16.4.2, what it has done is release iOS 16.4.1(a)which indicates that it is really the same version but with the corresponding security measures applied.
Is it advisable to install these versions?
Something that you have to keep in mind is that you may not yet have the possibility of installing this security patch that Apple has released, since according to reports, the company will be “distributing” this update for 48 hours among all the users who already had iOS 16.4.1 installed is their iPhone, as well as the rest of the versions of their different operating systems, which have also received this security patch.
Without a doubt, it is a really successful way of being able to make quick security modifications without having to introduce a new version of each operating system, something that of course who benefits the most is the users, who have Apple’s response to a problem that can affect their security in a short space of time. Therefore, when it comes to answering if it is really worth installing this security patch, the answer is very clear, obviously it is worth it, in fact, from the writing team of La Manzana Mordida we encourage you to do it as soon as possible .
However, as usual, Apple also offers users the ability to disable these types of updatesHowever, it is something that we do not recommend since when the Cupertino company uses this way to send users a security patch, it is because this measure is really necessary to safeguard the integrity of users who use all their devices daily, either an iPhone, iPad, Mac or any other, so even though you have that possibility, we do not recommend carrying it out in any way, since, as we have mentioned before, we consider it vitally important to update your devices as soon as possible.
