Urgent update for older iPhones before they lose vital functions

This new OS update brings several new improvements for iPhones including the much-awaited Deep Fusion for latest iPhones and more. Basic services such as the App Store, iCloud, email, and browsing the web via Safari or Chrome will stop working.

This means every 1024 weeks, or around 19.7 years, the counter rolls over, which can cause problems for programs and devices that rely on Global Positioning System for the correct date and time but haven't been coded correctly to account for the rollover.

When the Global Positioning System rollover happened in April, Apple had to push out a bug fix to stop devices' location services and clocks becoming confused.

You can download this latest update by going to Settings- General- Software Update.

Apple warned users of older devices in July that they had nearly four months to update the software before Sunday's moment of reckoning arrives.

Users must also upgrade the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad with Retina Display and the fourth generation iPad. The company said that the issue is with "GPS time rollover", in which GPS-based products reset the clock. "Affected Apple devices are not impacted until just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019".

You're not completely stuck if you can't update to 10.3.4 before November 3rd, but you will have to backup and restore to a computer if you intend to move to the newer software.

There's also a new privacy feature for controlling whether or not your Siri recordings are shared with Apple.

Users have experienced dropped calls, lost contacts, deleted emails.

Now, many are finding their iPhone battery will either not charge or keep a charge for long.

Shortly after announcing the new AirPods Pro, Apple released iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2.

Apple users are complaining that iOS 13 is draining their battery in just a few hours, the Daily Mail reported. But at least I now have Memojis.

Over-the-air software updates will immediately become unavailable too, although there is a solution to this one.
