Seven years after it was released, Apple began sending warnings to iPhone 5 users that they must update their smartphones to the latest version of iOS that is compatible, particularly iOS 10.3.4, on 3 November.
According to Apple, the iPhone 5 unit which was not updated to iOS 10.3.4 this weekend will not be able to connect to the internet. Basic services such as the App Store, iCloud, email and web browsing via Safari or Chrome will also stop working.
Over-the-air software updates will become unavailable, even though there is a solution for this.
If users forget to install software on the iPhone 5 on November 3, they must back up and restore data to the computer before moving to a newer iOS release.
Meanwhile, the fourth-generation iPad is also affected by changes even though the only function that will be affected is GPS. However, to anticipate, it is better to install the update.
