iOS 12.5.6 is now available for download and supports older generation models, including the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 6, the iPad mini 3 and 2, and the 6th generation iPod Touch. Support for these devices was dropped in iOS 13, but the Cupertino-based company has released updates to cover security fixes.

iOS 12.5.6 is believed to fix two major vulnerabilities introduced in iOS 15.6.1. Now Apple is poised to extend the same to older iPad and iPhone models, with patch notes saying that “this update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users.”

Users can update their Apple devices by going to the Settings app, then selecting General and Software Update. The build number of iOS 12.5.6 is 16H71.
