iOS 9.3.6 And iOS 10.3.4 For iPhone 5, 4s, iPad 4, 3, 2 And iPad mini 1 Released, Here’s What Is New
You can now download iOS 9.3.6 and iOS 10.3.4 IPSW links and OTA update for iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPad mini.
While all eyes were on the release of iOS 12.4 today, Apple also sneaked out another update. New versions of iOS 9.3.6 and iOS 10.3.4 are now available for older iPhones and iPads, apparently fixing an existing GPS bug.
The devices that benefit from these updates include the iPad mini, iPad 2, and iPad 3 while the iPad 4, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 will also receive similar fixes.
Anyone with one of those devices can head to Settings > General > Software Update to kick the download off no matter which previous version of iOS they are running.
The new updates fix an issue which previously impacted the performance of GPS location data on impacted devices. That in turn also impacted the devices’ ability to set the system date and time correctly. For that reason it’s worth updating your impacted devices as soon as possible especially if you frequently travel between time zones.
Alongside these new fixes Apple also released iOS 12.4 for newer iPhones and iPads. Those updates have been in beta for some time and bring new features including new wireless data migration system. Previously anyone moving data from an older device to a new one needed to use a cable, but that is not the case with iOS 12.4 installed.
Again, anyone updating to iOS 12.4 can do so by heading to Settings > General > Software Update in order to start the download and subsequent installation process.
