  • Have an iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, or Older iPad Model? Time to Update It

    Posted on October 31st, 2019 at 07:24 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    From Nathan Parker:

    We have been discussing on the AskWoody Lounge that owners of the iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, or
    some older iPad models need to update to iOS 10.3.4 (iPhone 5 and fourth generation cellular
    iPad) or iOS 9.3.6 (iPhone 4s or a handful of older cellular iPads). Apple provides more info
    here.

    For those who do not update their devices before November 3, there will be issues with GPS
    on these models. This issue does not affect iPod touch or any iPad models that have Wi-Fi only.
    It also doesn’t affect iOS devices newer than those listed in the support article.

    If the update to iPhone 5 is not completed by November 3, 2019, customers 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.

    So for those with these devices, it’s time to ensure they’re up-to-date.

    Apple has also recently launched a series of updates for devices this week, including macOS
    Catalina 10.15.1 and iOS 13.2. We’re tracking the latest updates on the AKB, and let us know
    anytime with your Apple questions!
