The day after the release of the first developer beta of macOS Ventura 13.2, Apple released a Security Quick Response for the operating system.

Introduced in iOS 16, iPadOS 16.1, and macOS Ventura, Apple uses Rapid Security Response to quickly release emergency security patches to users. It is separate from the normal system update channel.

On Wednesday, Apple released the first beta version of macOS Ventura 16.2, and on Thursday sent beta testers Rapid Security Response, the first such release for macOS. It is not known what it contains, but most likely it is a test.

In November, the company released a couple of Rapid Security Response updates to iOS 16.2 beta testers. Since this is a relatively new addition to its operating systems, Apple will likely test it to make it work properly in beta builds as well as official releases.
