Apple has released iOS 12.5.7, macOS 11.7.3 and other updates for old devices that cannot be updated to the latest versions.

These updates are for users who are still using older devices and operating systems. They fix bugs and security patches similar to those also fixed by versions of iOS 16.3 and macOS Ventura released today.

The security patch notes list at least 14 different systems affected by security issues that have been patched.

The new updates that are aimed at older devices are:

  • iOS 12.5.7
  • iOS 15.7.3
  • iPadOS 15.7.3
  • macOS Big Sur 11.7.3
  • macOS Monterey 12.6.3

It may strike you that there are missing versions between iOS 12 and iOS 15. This is because all devices that could run iOS 13 could also run iOS 15, so you don’t need to update those versions.

The oldest device that supports iOS 12.5.7, for example, is the iPhone 5s, which was released in September 2013. The oldest Macs that support macOS Big Sur are the MacBook Air, the Mac Pro, and the 2013 MacBook Pro. .

For those who have automatic updates turned on, you don’t have to do anything: the update will install itself at some point. Those who wish to install the update manually can do so through the Settings app. They just have to select “General” and then “Software Update”.
