Apple Warns Users To Update Their Device Or Say Goodbye To Internet

Models of 7 years and older suffer consequences.

Apple is currently warning users who are still operating on the older iOS system to upgrade their software soon. If they don’t, by November 3rd or Sunday, users won’t be getting accurate GPS location on their Apple devices and lose functionality for core apps such as App Store, iCloud, email and web browsing.

According to Apple, its GPS rollover issue happens once every 19 years. This reset is to recalibrate the time and date on GPS devices based on what Office of Electricity at the Department of Energy says.

This is especially important to those who are still holding on to Apple devices that were launch in 2012 and older. iPhone 4, 5, third-generation iPad users and below will have to heed to this warning. Your iOS version should read either 10.3.4 or 9.3.6.

Previously, Apple did a rollover on April 6 and it has affected GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers as well.
