Apple today decided to release iOS 12.5.5 for older iPhones and iPads, and also claims that this version includes security updates and improvements.
After Apple unveiled iOS 15, it became clear that all of the company's phones will be able to receive the new update from the iPhone 6s onwards. Thus, the iPhone 6s became the first phone in history to receive updates in terms of security and software for more than five years. But Apple did not finish the update for older phones and decided to release iOS 12.5.5 for them.
According to what has been released, apparently iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 and 3, iPod Touch The 6th generation, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are set to receive this update. Not all of these devices were able to receive the new update after iOS 13, but Apple once again provided a security update for them and recommended that they all install it so that the phone would remain in good security condition.
Apple released iOS 12.5.4 in June this year with security improvements, and the new update is exactly the same. That's why the American company has recommended that users install it. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. This seems to be the latest update that Apple is releasing for these handsets, and even if it is, Apple's performance in this area has been admirable.
If you are using an iPhone 6 Plus or older? Have you received the iOS 12.5.5 update? Has a new feature been added to your phone, or does iOS 12.5.5 only contain security enhancements and does not include any specific software changes?
