Apple Devices 2012 and Older Require Update

If you have an older iPhone or iPad device, Apple will require you to update your iOS on November 3rd of this year. While this may cause controversy over forced updates, Apple states how important this particular update is.

“It’s always a good idea to keep the operating system on your iPhone or iPad updated,” Apple Support writes. “It’s especially important to update your device’s software before November 3, 2019 to make sure that its GPS, date, and time continue to work properly.

If you don’t update to the newest version of iOS available for your device before November 3, 2019, some models might not be able to maintain an accurate GPS position. And functions that rely on the correct date and time—such as syncing with iCloud and fetching email—might not work.”

Devices affected by this update are located on their Support Blog. If you have a Wi-Fi only iPad or iPod touch, you won’t have to worry about this issue making any kind of impact.
