iOS 12.5.4 Download Released For Older iPhones, iPads With Important Security Updates Included

Apple has today released iOS 12.5.4 for older iPhone and iPads with the release solely available to get important security fixes onto as many devices as possible.

In fact, there are three different security fixes included in this release with the Pad Air, the iPad mini 2, and iPad mini 3, plus the 6th gen iPod touch, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus all included. None of those devices support iOS 13, hence the iOS 12.x identifier.

Apple details the security fixes on its security updates webpage, with the update very much recommended for all users who have a compatible device.
