Apple today has released iOS 12.4.2 for a handful older iPhone and iPad models that were not updated to iOS 13 last week. What exactly has changed in today’s update is unclear, but the update likely focuses on security. Apple has also released watchOS 5.3.2.

The update is available for the iPad Air, the iPad mini 2, and iPad mini 3, as well as the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. All of these devices were dropped from support with iOS 13.
The last update for these devices was iOS 12.4.1, which was released last month with a fix for a vulnerability that allowed for a jailbreak on many iPhone models.
We’ll be sure to update when we learn more about the contents and changes in iOS 12.4.2. Let us know down in the comments if you notice any changes on these older devices.
