Apple is asking all iPhone 5 clients to refresh the iOS form of their phone to have a decent client experience. In an official proclamation, Apple says that it needs iPhone 5 clients to update their gadgets to iOS 10.3.4 form by November 3. The Cupertino major further advises all clients neglecting to update their iPhone 5 won’t have the option to perform essential assignments like – searching the web – after Nov 3. Apple also says that iPhone 5 clients who fail to update the iOS version will be avoided using some key iOS apps like App Store and iCloud.
iPhone 5 users must update to iOS 10.3.4 by November 3
“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 clients who fail to update their iPhone 5 won’t have the option to use a part 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.
