Update (2022-10-27): Peter Steinberger:

How can there be so many more security fixes in macOS Ventura than in the latest Monterey 12.6.1 update? They can’t possibly have rewritten all these components in a year… that’s ~60 vs 3 vulnerabilities fixed. (So... update fast!)

Andrew Cunningham:

Apple released a document clarifying its terminology and policies around software upgrades and updates. Most of the information in the document isn’t new, but the company did provide one clarification about its update policy that it hadn’t made explicit before: Despite providing security updates for multiple versions of macOS and iOS at any given time, Apple says that only devices running the most recent major operating system versions should expect to be fully protected.

Update (2022-11-01): Nick Heer:

It is not a great sign when official documentation misuses the word “integer” in a sentence that immediately negates the previous paragraph’s explanation for how Apple differentiates software updates and software upgrades.
