Older operating systems will see iOS 15.7, iPadOS 15.7, and Monterey 12.6. The iPad and macOS versions bring security patches until the release of iPadOS 16.1 and macOS Ventura later this fall. The iOS 15.7 for iPhones serves two purposes; to provide security patches for older iPhones, which are unable to run iOS 16 (iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and the original iPhone SE) and for users who do not wish to upgrade to iOS 16 yet but want security patches.

One of the new features in iOS 16 is the addition of "Security Responses and System Files" found in Settings>Software Update>Automatic Updates. Security Responses and System Files allows Apple to automatically install rapid security responses and system files for iPhone and supported accessories. Some updates require an iPhone restart to complete installation. In addition, some system files will be installed automatically even if the feature is turned off.

Apple also released macOS Big Sur 11.7 for the purpose of patching security vulnerabilities in the operating system and Safari 16 for both Monterey and Big Sur. There has been no update for Catalina, which may be an indication that Apple will no longer be supporting it.

Upcoming articles to follow discussing Messages, Health and many other new iOS 16 features.

Pausing AI Developments Isn't Enough. We Need to Shut it All Down

TimeMar 29, 2023

Yudkowsky is a decision theorist from the U.S. and leads research at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute. He's been working on aligning Artificial General Intelligence since 2001 and is widely regarded as a founder of the field.

An open letter published today calls for “all AI labs to immediately pause for at least 6 months the training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4.”

This 6-month moratorium would be better than no moratorium. I have respect for everyone who stepped up and signed it. It’s an improvement on the margin.

I refrained from signing because I think the letter is understating the seriousness of the situation and asking for too little to solve it.

The key issue is not “human-competitive” intelligence (as the open letter puts it); it’s what happens after AI gets to smarter-than-human intelligence. Key thresholds there may not be obvious, we definitely can’t calculate in advance what happens when, and it currently seems imaginable that a research lab would cross critical lines without noticing.
