This update comes after Apple released iOS 16.5.1(a) to fix a vulnerability in WebKit, the engine that powers Safari and other third-party browsers on iOS. However, Apple removed access to the update shortly after.
Apple said on July 11 that iOS 16.5.1 (a) could have caused some websites to display incorrectly. The next day, Apple said the latest RSR had fixed the problem.
Apple introduced RSR updates in December to provide users with important security fixes more frequently.
Apple also released the first public beta of iOS 17 the same day it released iOS 16.5.1 (c). If you want to try the public beta, here’s how you can download it – but we recommend only downloading a beta version on something other than your main phone, in case the new software causes problems.
