                                    November 3 GPS will break on old iPhone

Not everyone loves the new iPhone. Some are old enough. Apple devices — with proper care — have been able to work for years.

IOS updates have a similar story. Many fundamentally do not install updates. For example, to avoid performance issues. Fresh firmware sometimes slows down irrelevant models.

However, there are disadvantages in this regard. A striking illustration of this is the upcoming GPS glitch. It became known that some iPhone and iPad will soon suffer.

GPS time transfer took place. The foregoing will affect the "apple" gadgets on November 3 (at 3 in the morning in Moscow). Bugs will start with the date displayed and the location will no longer be accurately determined.

Also forget about updates via Wi-Fi. Errors are expected with downloading mail and iCloud. As you know, nothing good is expected.

Fortunately, the list of future victims is short:

iPad mini (Wi-Fi + Cellular)
iPad 2 (Wi-Fi + Cellular)
iPad 3 (Wi-Fi + Cellular)
iPad 4 (Wi-Fi + Cellular)
iPhone 4s
iPhone 5

Agree, the trouble is not too large. Among other things, there is another condition. Namely, the absence on the device of the latest version of iOS (for a specific product).

iPad 4 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) and iPhone 5 need iOS 10.3.4. Is your OS ancient? Will have to move to a more relevant platform. The assembly is indicated above.

What should owners of iPhone 4s, iPad 3 (Wi-Fi + Cellular), iPad mini (Wi-Fi + Cellular) and iPad 2 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) do? You must have iOS 9.3.6.

Where to see the number? Go to "Settings", open "General" and click "About this device". Next, find the "Software Version" option. Nothing complicated.

GPS glitches do not threaten other devices. What if the situation was not corrected before November 3? Get iOS 10.3.4 and iOS 9.3.6 using alternative methods (via Finder or iTunes).

Having trouble? Apple has published detailed information. In addition, support is available online.
