Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2023-03-03

This is the time of the year where we get regular updates for macOS, but not that many new features. It is also time where MacAdmins adopt the new versions, either by choice or because the 90 day deferral limit has expired for good a while back. This is a busy time for MacAdmins.

We also got the second beta for macOS 13.3 and iOS 16.4 and Apple is testing the new Rapid Security Response technology again. It is encouraging that they are testing this “in the field” and hopefully that will make a big difference in reliability.
