ockdown Mode — coming this season with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura — is an extreme, optional protection for specific users who face cyberthreats to their digital security.

In a new security feature, Apple is allowing users to choose additional safeguards against highly targeted cyberattacks that might be perpetrated by private companies developing malicious mercenary software.

Additionally, most message attachment types other than images have been blocked, and link previews in Messages. Just-in-time compilation of JavaScript has been rendered inoperative, support for shared albums has been removed from Photos, and FaceTime calls from unknown numbers have been blocked.

At launch, Lockdown Mode includes the following protections:

  • Messages: Most message attachment types other than images are blocked. Some features, like link previews, are disabled.
  • Web browsing: Certain complex web technologies, like just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compilation, are disabled unless the user excludes a trusted site from Lockdown Mode.
  • Apple services: Incoming invitations and service requests, including FaceTime calls, are blocked if the user has not previously sent the initiator a call or request.
  • Wired connections with a computer or accessory are blocked when iPhone is locked.
  • Configuration profiles cannot be installed, and the device cannot enroll into mobile device management (MDM), while Lockdown Mode is turned on.
