It is surprising to see that a 5-year old device like iPhone 5S to get the latest update. Most Android flagships get 2 or at the most 3 major updates. iPhone 5S was launched with iOS 7 and has seen 5 major updates since then (including the iOS 12). However, this is the last major update for the smartphone. Even iPads including iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air might not receive any major update after this one.

Currently, the iOS 12 is available under Apple’s Beta program and is currently being tested and refined by the developers. Users who have registered themselves under the Apple iOS Developer Program can download and install the iOS 12 Beta right now. However, we highly recommend you to not install the Beta firmware on your primary smartphone. It is better to wait for the stable version as Beta versions have a lot of bugs.
