Very Important Notice 

IOS Update for iPhone 5 Users – Time Sensitive

It is necessary to update your iPhone 5 to continue using App Store, iCloud, email, web, and other wireless services.

Before Saturday evening, November 2, 2019,* iPhone 5 will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and to continue to use functions that rely on correct date and time including App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing. This is due to the GPS time rollover issue that began affecting GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019.

To update your iPhone 5:

*       Open Settings.

*       Select General.

*       Select Software Update.

*       Follow the screen prompts to download and install the update.

If the update to your iPhone 5 is not completed by Saturday evening November 2, 2019, you will be required to use a computer to backup and update your iPhone, because over-the-air software updates and iCloud Backup will not work.


To check your device's iOS version after you have run the update:

*       Open Settings.

*       Select General.

*       Select About.

*       Look for the number next to Software Version.

*       The updated software version number should be 10.3.4 or 9.3.6, depending on your device.


Effective Apple devices are:

*       iPad 4th Generation Wi-Fi and Cellular;

*       iPhone 4S;

*       iPad mini 1st Generation Wi-Fi plus Cellular;

*       iPad 2 Wi-Fi Plus Cellular CDMA models only;

*       iPad 3rd Generation Wi-Fi Plus Cellular.


This issue does not affect iPod touch or any iPad models that have Wi-Fi only. It also doesn't affect iOS devices newer than those listed above.
