This week, Apple has issued an update for the nearly 10-year-old iPhone 5S.

The update that was released for it was iOS 12.5.7 and is said to be a security patch for the old iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 5S quit receiving software updates in 2018 after iOS 12 was launched.

The Verge reported that what the security update does the customers that are still regularly using it is getting rid of a security flaw where “processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution.”

Its article also highlights how that specific issue may have been “exploited” in devices running iOS 15.1 or earlier.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are eligible for this update too, and overall, by updating all these devices, it does show Apple’s commitment to always trying to provide the best security and encryption possible for its products and customers.
