iOS is the simplest operating system in terms of interacting with an inexperienced user, and this is one of the main reasons for the popularity of the iPhone and iPad among absolutely all categories of the population. Almost any user can solve the problems encountered in the iOS software environment and even independently reinstall the OS. But sometimes the problem may lie in the fact that Apple simply stopped supporting its old devices. That’s what we’ll talk about today.

Which Version of iOS is Currently Installed on an iPhone or iPad?

To find out which system controls the device at the moment, go to the Settings -> General -> About menu and pay attention to the “Software Version” line.

iPhone 5 and 6 Update Issues

As stated in the iOS 13 release, the update will be available only for the iPhone 6S and newer models. Unfortunately, iPhone 5 and 6 can only be satisfied with the following versions of iOS:

  • iPhone 5, iPhone 5c – iOS 10.3.4;
  • iPhone 5s – iOS 12.4.4;
  • iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus – iOS 12.4.4.

Where Сan I Download the Latest IPSW iOS Firmware?

Apple does not allow installing outdated versions of the operating system on its mobile devices (i.e., rolling back or downgrading the iOS version), so only the latest firmware will be available for each gadget. If you have problems with the firmware, then as I wrote earlier this can be fixed by manually flashing the phone. All the necessary instructions and files on device firmware and IPSW files for installing iOS can be found on our website.


iPhone 5s was released in 2013 and became the first Apple smartphone with a 64-bit processor. Updates to the smartphone came even five years after the release, although Apple usually ceases to support such devices.
