IPhone 5 iOS 10.3.4 update necessary to continue working

Share

Apple is rushing to get the word out to users of older iPhone devices that they need to urgently update or else lose several key functionalities for a freaky event that only happens once every two decades.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple is sending out a tall full-screen message to iPhone 5 users asking them to update their devices to iOS 10.3.4 version before November 3, 2019.

Apple warned users of older devices in July that they had nearly four months to update the software before Sunday's moment of reckoning arrives.

In July of this year, Apple has released an update with bug fixes for the old iOS and iOS 10.3.4 9.3.6. The company has been reminding users to download the update, particularly those who still use an iPhone 5 or iPad fourth-generation.

Even though the rollover happened in April, Apple said in July, when an update was released, that the issue wouldn't affect older devices until November 3, 2019. Since older devices are unable to compute the reset, Apple relies on software updates. "Affected Apple devices are not impacted until just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019", it added.

Mr Johnson told MPs he was "disappointed" they had "voted for delay", and said the United Kingdom "now faced further uncertainty". Johnson said that one response from the government would be to accelerate preparations for a "no-deal" Brexit on October 31.

Additionally, a bug that prevents devices as old as the iPhone 4S and first-generation iPad mini from using Global Positioning System, and prevents it from gauging the correct date and time, will be fixed.

On Twitter, several iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are complaining about the latest issue they experienced on their devices. "Getting 70% battery drain in 2 hrs", said one user.

It was also the year where people were queuing around the clock to get their hands on the brand-new iPhone 5.

The users affected by this annoying iOS 13 bug receive a warning on their iPhone device, saying that "the Ultra Wideband Update Failed". Discovered by Trusted Reviews, there seems to be a recent burst of activity in both Apple Support on Twitter and in Apple's Official Support Communities Forum.
