Apple started distributing the iOS 12.5.1 with several bug fixes for users who do not have an iPhone chosen for iOS 14. The new system software has been distributed to those who have and use older models of iOS smartphones.
The update brings security and system corrections, mainly to correct the flaws related to Exposure Notifications in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, in regions where such an option is available to the public.
Update for older iPhone models
The distribution of iOS 12.5.1 is done in a gradual and phased manner, not reaching all older iPhone simultaneously. Note also that this is distributed via OTA (over-the-air), so the user will be notified via iPhone notification.
Likewise, they can check their availability by accessing the Settings – General – Software Update. If it is already available in the user’s region, just select it and start the installation on the Apple phone in question.
This update was first advanced by the publication Macrumors, always attentive to Cupertino’s designs. It is an incremental update that not only corrects some system failures, but also brings new alert measures against COVID-19.
Stability improvements and alert measures in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic
For users who continue to use older iPhone models, Apple thus extends the useful life of these terminals. It is, above all, a reinforcement for the stability of smartphones, with the addition of some alert measures against COVID-19.
For other users, the latest version of iOS remains 14, not available for older models.
