Ed Hardy for the Cult of Mac:
Don't believe it is an iOS update for anyone who still uses an iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or other Apple devices from 2012 or earlier. This ensures that these classic models can still get accurate access to the GPS system.
Apple released iOS 10.3.4 for iPhone 5 and fourth generation iPad. In addition, the company introduced iOS 9.3.6 for iPhone 4S, the original iPad mini and second and third generation iPad models. These updates are only for iPads with built-in mobile connectivity, as Wi-Fi iOS tablets do not have GPS.
MacDailyNews Take: You know, because Apple is the hell of planned obsolescence for sales. (smirk)
The iPad 2 was released March 1
Apple's support document says in part: “From November 3, 2019, some iPhone and iPad models introduced in 2012 and earlier will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and maintain the correct date and time. This is due to the GPS timing issue that started affecting GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019. Affected Apple devices are not affected until November 3, 2019. ”
