How to Disable Rapid Security Response Software Updates on iPhone

Apple no longer needs to update the complete operating system to iOS 16 in order to provide security fixes to iPhones. To find out how it functions and how to turn it off if you'd rather, continue reading.

Some of Apple's most significant iOS mobile operating system point releases in the past have been connected to vital security updates intended to protect your online privacy and your personal information.

The fact that the user must update and restart the operating system after choosing to install these updates has historically been one issue with them.

Rapid Security Response is a feature in iOS 16 that can help you avoid all of that hassle and get crucial security upgrades to your devices even faster, having them applied automatically in between regular software updates.

Apple configures your device to automatically install security updates when you update to iOS 16, but you can disable the feature if you'd rather. Here's how to go about it.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap through to General -> Software Update.1rapid-security-response-disable
  3. Tap Automatic Updates.
  4. Toggle off the switch next to Install Security Responses & System Files.2rapid-security-response-disable

All there is to it is that. It should be noted that even if this setting is disabled, some system files may still be installed automatically depending on how critical the update is.
