“Update Or Not To Update Your iPhone, that is the question!”

“Attention Apple iPhone5 users, attention Apple iPhone5 users, Apple iPhone5 users, update your phone or you may lose internet connection!”

Apple is warning some iPhone users that they could lose internet connection if they do not update their phones.

iPhone 5 users who do not update their phone’s operating system by November the 3rd, will not be able to use multiple features on their phones.

Apple & WAND-TV said iPhone 5s will need an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and other functions that need the correct date and time.

This includes the App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing.


To make sure your phone is on the most up to date operating system:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to General
  3. Tap About
  4. Look for the number of the Software Version


The most recent software version is 10.3.4. If that is not the number you see, you will need to update.
