Apple releases new OS for older iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch models

Apple has always been famous for releasing new versions of operating systems for its phones for at least four years from the date of their release to the market, that is, having bought one in 2020, it is guaranteed to receive the latest and most modern software that is guaranteed to please everyone one way or another, because it simply cannot be otherwise. Today, November 6, 2020, something incredible happened, because Apple released a new OS for old models of smartphones, tablets, portable players and even set-top boxes. It goes without saying that such an event was a big surprise for all users, because software support for this kind of gadgets stopped a few years ago.

Of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with all this and cannot be, because the longer Apple releases updates for its gadgets, the more secure all their users are and the longer it will be possible to safely operate them. Starting today, users can install on their mobile devices and tablet computers such new firmware as iOS 12.4.9, which is available for installation on the following models of the brand’s gadgets: iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 1st generation, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, and iPod touch 6th generation. You can install the update either using a computer, connecting to such an electronic device, or by updating “over the air” by selecting the appropriate option in the gadget settings.

According to the description of the released update, it fixes a number of dangerous vulnerabilities that were recently discovered by Apple. It goes without saying that you need to install this update as soon as possible in order to protect yourself as much as possible from intruders and hackers. In addition, as stated in the description of the update, it fixes a number of bugs and bugs that iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users may have complained about. The third-generation Apple TV set-top box was also updated, which was updated to the operating system 8.4.3. It also closes those updates and improves the user experience. If you believe the description of the released updates, they do not affect the stability and speed of electronic devices at all.

In addition, of course, the iOS 12.4.9 and tvOS 8.4.3 firmware do not bring along with them new new functions and capabilities, so when installing updates of this kind, you should definitely take this into account one way or another. It goes without saying that the new OS closes the possibility of installing a jailbreak, so if there was such a thing before, immediately after installing the latest software on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, it will be impossible to jailbreak using the exploits already on the market. That is why, perhaps, someone should not update, as this will result in the fact that it will be impossible to jailbreak an Apple electronic device for the sake of expanding its functionality or for something else.

Earlier it was revealed that Apple launched a search engine, the “killer” of Google.
