Seven years after the iPhone 5 was released, Apple began sending warnings to its owners. Apple asks iPhone 5 owners to update their device to the latest compatible version of iOS, i.e. iOS 10.3.4.

Why Do Apple Reminds iPhone 5 Users to Update?

According to Apple, iPhone 5 units that were not updated to iOS 10.3.4 on November 3 will not be able to connect to the internet. Basic services like App Store, iCloud, E-mail and web browsing via Safari or Chrome will stop working.

An over-the-air (OTA) software update will soon become unavailable, even though it’s the only solution to keep the iPhone 5 working. If you forget to install software on the iPhone 5 on November 3, you must back up and restore to the computer before moving to a newer iOS release.

Apple initially stopped development for iOS 10 two years ago after the release of iOS 11. But in the end, the Cupertino-based company was forced to fix an important summer problem.

Quoted from Phone Arena, Monday (10/28/2019), Apple’s move to fix this problem helps maintain older iPhone and iPad compatibility with GPS networks as they go through a periodic rollover transition.

Apart from that, the iPhone 5 isn’t the only device that experiences problems if the user doesn’t update new software. The fourth-generation iPad is also affected by the change even though the only function that will be affected is GPS. However small the issue is, it is advised for all users to update immediately.
