This update addresses a critical security issues that were discovered on iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple published a new version of iOS 12 on Wednesday, over a year after the company’s last update. The new version is intended to repair a security issue that was recently closed in later versions of the operating system. It is worth your time to upgrade if you are still using an iPhone 5S, an iPhone 6, or an iPhone 6 Plus. Apple doesn’t offer security patches for its older software very often, so when it does, you can be sure that the problem is at least somewhat significant.
If you open a malicious website in Safari or another browser on your phone, it might potentially launch code without being checked for errors because of a vulnerability that has been resolved in iOS 12.5.6. In addition to this, Apple has said that it is probable that someone somewhere in the globe has attempted to take advantage of this flaw. Even though this particular warning is not cause for alarm because it is fairly typical for the firm, it does indicate that you should definitely proceed with some degree of care until you are able to upgrade your phone.
How to update iPhone 5S and iPhone 6
By navigating to Settings > General > Software Update, you will be able to download and install the update on your device. If your phone notifies you that you do not have sufficient capacity to install the update, you may follow our instructions on how to free up storage space; some of the displays may seem slightly different, but the fundamentals will remain basically the same.
The update is also available for a few other devices, including the iPad Air from the first generation, the iPad Mini 2 and iPad Mini 3, and the iPod Touch from the sixth generation. It is highly recommended that you spend some time today updating any of them that you may have lying about, so set aside portion of your day for that purpose.
