As we all know that Apple stopped releasing any iOS updates for the older devices like iPhone 4s and others mentioned above. Apple keeps releasing iOS updates for fixing the bugs and issues for the Apple users but this time Apple issued iOS updates for these old Apple devices following GPS and security issues.
Improvement in GPS Location, time and data
Apple released these iOS updates because there were many bugs coming in the working of GPS and time data. Many GPS-enabled applications were getting effected from this ongoing bug of GPS which was not only affecting the accuracy of GPS location but also was disturbing the actual time and data. To make sure that GPS and the time-data bug doesn’t affect the users, Apple released these iOS updates.
Following this matter, recently iOS updates are 9.3.6 and 10.3.4. iOS 9.3.6 is issued for the Apple iPhone 4, iPad Mini, iPad 2 and iPad 3 because Apple stopped updating iOS versions for these devices at 9.3.5. Now if we talk about an iOS 10.3.4 this update is issued for the devices iPad 4 and iPhone 5 for the same interest of fixing GPS rollover, time and data issues.
In a support article by Apple, the company asked it’s users to update their iOS versions to improve the location and time-data accuracy.
