I'm not sure what you've planned for today, but you should probably postpone your plans so you have time to update your iPhone. And yes, it has to be today.
If you still own an iPhone 5 (one of the most impressive industrial iPhone designs to leave Sir Jony Ive's renowned design lab), there is a Ultimate update waiting for you.
Apple has warned iPhone 5 owners that they might lose access to a number of key features, including email, Internet surfing, App Store access and iCloud Do not upgrade to the new version of iOS. The company, based in Cupertino, is sending full-screen alerts to appear on iPhone 5 users' displays.
The update to iOS 10.3.4 must be made this evening before midnight, November 3rd.
The problem occurred occurred due to a peculiarity of the GPS function.
In addition to your location ( obviously ), GPS technology must keep track of the time and date. It keeps track of the date by counting the number of weeks and storing that value as 1
The most recent rollover after 20 years took place earlier this year April 6th. If you are using a newer handset, you have not even noticed this switch.
Older handsets – like the iPhone 5, which does not receive regular updates from Apple – could, however, work without the specially-launched hard-to-fix iOS fix to fix the problem. After installing iOS 10.3.4, Apple will ensure that the GPS functionality and clock will continue to work as normal.
However, if you do not install the update in a timely manner, it may significantly affect your iPhone's performance due to a manufacturing defect. It's not just the iPhone 5, but other Apple devices – like the fourth generation iPad – are also affected by this change. However, they are only expected to lose access to the GPS functionality.
Fortunately, this should not be the case Many people are negatively affected by this last change.
According to Apple, only nine percent of all iOS devices will run software earlier than iOS 12. Therefore, it is unlikely that a large number of iPhone users will be cut off from this change on the Internet and by e-mail next month. That said, it's very unusual for a business to ask users to update a seven-year-old smartphone to new software to keep it running.
In the meantime, those with the latest iPhone hardware have their own problems. iOS 13 has brought a number of bugs and quirks where apps crash, performance wanes, and the camera app stutters at startup. Apple has released its iOS 13.1 update for six days to fix the issues with the mobile operating system. Something it has tried to fix with the subsequent roll-out of iOS 13.1.1 iOS 13.1.2 and iOS 13.1.3 .
