The iPhone 5 was released back in 2012 which means that it is currently 7 years old. It also means that there is a very good chance that many iPhone 5 owners would have probably moved on to newer iPhones or other devices since, but at the same time, we get it, there are maybe a small handful of users who are still holding onto their phones.
iOS 11 was released not too long ago and unfortunately for those who were quick to adopt the update, it seems that it wasn’t a particularly good update as there have been quite a few people who have complained about it slowing down their apps and being a huge battery drain. Unfortunately if you have updated, you’re kind of stuck with it now.
With every major iOS release, Apple touts various improvements made to speed and performance as one of the reasons why users should update. If you’re wondering about that yourself, the folks at EverythingApplePro have put together a video that demonstrates the speed of iOS 11 compared to the previous release, iOS 10.3.3.
Updates big or small are usually worth updating to, because whether it introduces a major new feature or if it introduces bug fixes, it doesn’t hurt to ensure that your software remains up to date. Now Apple recently released the iOS 10.3.3 update for iOS devices and while it doesn’t seem to be a major update, you should probably update it anyway.
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you might be interested to learn that Apple has recently released a new update to the iOS 10 operating system. This latest update will bump your phone’s software up to iOS 10.3.3 and according to the changelog, it seems that this update will focus more on bug fixes and various improvements to your device.
If you’re using an iOS device and you’ve encountered some bugs that you’re hoping Apple would have fixed, you could be in luck. This is because Apple has recently released its latest update to the platform in the form of iOS 10.3.2. This is the latest update to iOS and it will bring about a host of bug fixes and what not.
If you’re using iOS 10 then there’s a good chance that your device could be affected by a recently discovered bug within the Control Center feature that could potentially crash iOS. First noted by Italian website AmiciApple (via 9to5Mac), this bug appears to be in iOS 10 and in the iOS 10.3.2 beta, it looks like Apple has yet to address the issue.
We know that Apple has plans to eventually move its users and apps into 64-bit territory, with reports claiming that iOS 11 will kill off support for 32-bit apps completely. However that might actually be happening a bit earlier than expected, or at least that’s according to a post on Forbes which claims that Apple could obsolete the iPhone 5 with iOS 10.3.2.
A little over a week ago Apple released the iOS 10.3 update which is one of the more major updates for iOS 10. While the update did bring about new features, changes, improvements, and bug fixes, it seems that it has also come with some small problems of its own, such as the accidental re-enabling some iCloud services.
The other day Apple released the iOS 10.3 update which is one of the company’s more major updates to date ahead of iOS 11. Now one of the changes that Apple made to iOS 10 with the update is patch a couple of security flaws, but it seems that they might have missed one, or it did not get patched in time for the release.
Back in October 2016, it was discovered that a flaw within iOS 10 could be exploited in which iPhones were made to dial 911 repeatedly. Given that dialing 911 as a prank is illegal as it basically ties up the lines for people who actually do have an emergency, this was clearly a bug that needed to be addressed.
Just the other day Apple released iOS 10.3 and if you needed a reason to update, apart from the patching of a Safari security hole, it seems that there is a good chance that if you were to update your iPhone to iOS 10.3, you might notice some speed increases, or at least that’s what’s being claimed at the moment.
With the release of iOS 10.3, you might have heard that Apple has made some changes to the file storage system in iOS where they are moving from HFS+ to APFS. For the average user this might not mean much, at least not at first, but the folks at AppleInsider have discovered that this actually resulted in the freeing up of storage space for users.
iOS 10.3 has been released for iOS users, and we know that there are some users out there who tend to wait before updating to see if there are any bugs. That is completely understandable, however for security reasons perhaps it might be worth updating to iOS 10.3 as soon as possible.
