Update iPhone or iPad to Avoid GPS Issues

If you have an iPhone or iPad made in 2012 or earlier, you will want to read this. This Sunday, November 3rd, GPS disruptions will occur if you do not have your Apple devices updated to the latest software.

According to Apple Support, “Starting just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019,* some iPhone and iPad models introduced in 2012 and earlier will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location. This is due to the GPS time rollover issue that began affecting GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019. Affected Apple devices are not impacted until just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019.”

The software version should be 10.3.4 or 9.3.6. To check if you have one of these numbers, simply open up the Settings app and go to General, then About. The Software Version is the second down, under your name.
