About a month after the release of iOS 12.5 , Apple releases iOS 12.5.1 for older iPhone and iPad models.
The company rolled out iOS 12.5 for older devices last month, introducing support for COVID-19 exposure notifications . This was a major change as it expands contact tracking to iPhones that don’t support iOS 14.
According to the changelog, today’s update fixes a bug that could cause the exposure notification registration profile language to display incorrectly.
iOS 12.5.1 is available for the following devices:
- iPad Air
- iPad mini 2
- iPad mini 3
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPod touch 6th generation
