If you are still attached to your iPhone 5 close, you’ll want to make sure it is running the latest software available – the consequences could be serious if you do not.
Apple has started warning iPhone 5 owners with full-screen warning that they will lose key online features (including email, web browsing, the App Store and iCloud) if they do not update to iOS 10.3.4 before 12:00 UTC on November 3.
GPS time rollover problems that started in April would be a feature that requires the correct date and time, Apple said.

You do not really get stuck if you can not update to 10.3.4 prior to November 3, but you have to backup and restore to a computer if you intend to move to a newer software. Other devices such as the iPad fourth generation is also affected, but they are only expected to lose the GPS function.
There will not be too many people affected by this. Apple said that 9 percent of all users of iOS devices running software earlier than iOS 12 on October 15 and many of them use the hardware later (percentage dipped to 7 percent when you restrict the data to the device of four years or later) , However, it is not often that a company has to urge people to update the device seven years after its launch.
