Apple released iOS 12.5.6 for older devices with security issue fixes

Apple released a new software update today, but this one is a little different since it’s for older devices that the firm no longer supports—at least not with its most recent iOS releases.

The iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, original iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3 and even the sixth-generation iPod touch are among the iPhones and iPad still running iOS 12.5.6, which is already being sent to them.

The new update’s build number is 16H71, and it fixes a security flaw in the WebKit that might result in arbitrary code execution. According to Apple, this problem “may have been actively exploited”, thus the company is “aware of a report”.

Therefore, if you still possess one of the aforementioned older devices, it should go without saying that you should download and apply this update as soon as you can. You ought to have already gotten the notification to obtain it; it’s a 275MB download. If not, you may always get the software update via Settings > General > Software Update.
