Apple iPhone iOS

Are you an iPhone 5 user? If yes, Apple has a news for you. And it's an important one. Apple is asking all iPhone 5 users to update the iOS version of their phone in order to have a good user experience. In an official statement, Apple says that it wants iPhone 5 users to update their device to iOS 10.3.4 version by November 3.

The Cupertino major further informs all users failing to update their iPhone 5 will not be able to perform basic tasks like--browsing the internet--after Nov 3. Apple also says that iPhone 5 users who fail to update the iOS version will be refrained from using some key iOS applications like App Store and iCloud. "Starting just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019,* iPhone 5 will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and to continue to use functions that rely on correct date and time including App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing," Apple notes in an official statement. Why is Apple asking iPhone 5 users to update iOS version? Well, it is because of the GPS time rollover issue that affected GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019.

"Affected Apple devices are not impacted until just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019," Apple says in the statement. All users who fail to update their iPhone 5 will not be able to use some of the key iOS applications. In the statement, Apple says, "It's always a good idea to keep the operating system on your iPhone updated. If you have an iPhone 5, it's especially important to update your device's software wirelessly or using your computer before November 3 to maintain accurate GPS location and to continue to use functions that rely on correct date and time including App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing." iPhone 5 users failing to update their phones before November will face consequences. "If the update to iPhone 5 is not completed by November 3, 2019, you will be required to back up and restore using a Mac or PC in order to update because over-the-air software updates and iCloud Backup will not work," notes Apple.
