7 Things to Know About the iPhone 5s iOS 12.5.5 Update



What's Next for the iPhone 5s

What's Next for the iPhone 5s

iOS 12.5.5 might be the final update for the iPhone 5s. 

Apple won't upgrade the iPhone 5s to iOS 13, iOS 14, or iOS 15 which means the device will remain on the final version of iOS 12. Whatever that ends up being.

It could be iOS 12.5.5 or it could be another version if Apple chooses to release another version down the road. 

If Apple does release a new version of iOS 12, it could do so alongside a new iOS 15 update later this year. Keep an eye out as we push through the month. 

For more about iOS 13, iOS 14, iOS 15 and the features the iPhone 5s misses out on, take a look at our iOS 13 walkthrough, our iOS 14 walkthrough, and our iOS 15 guide.

    I bought my iPhone 5 plus 6 months ago. It urged me to upgrade from iOS11 to iOS 12. I did as instructed but encountered a big problem – I couldn’t recharge the phone. I took it back to the dealer and it somehow fixed it. They told me that there was a problem with iOS 12 for older phone, and one of the problems was refusing to recharge. I am now a bit worried about upgrading to iOS 12.1.4. Please advice.

    My iPhone 5S won’t let me backup the phone, it keeps saying there was an error! I got a new battery and it keeps running down quickly so I wanted to reset the phone but I need to backup the phone first. I did the upgrade but it still won’t let me backup! Does the cord make a difference?

    I upgraded my, original still used, 5S a couple of days ago when I saw the 12.5.1 update. Now when my phone hits 50-60% battery it goes dead. I turned it off then back on and got 20 seconds of 4X?% battery then it shut off again and would not come back. Something seems to be going on to me but not sure. It is the original batter but hadn’t had problems before I did the upgrade.
