    Dont be surprised when you can no longer get updates and apps arnt compatible.
    My work iphone4 is long obselete . So its of little use as a smartphone, still OK as a phone

    I have always been wary about updating my iPhone5 to the latest version of o/s having heard stories of major slow downs but given the message from Apple I updated and my phone seems faster than ever, yay.

    It was a 34 meg download then quite a few blank screens and one restart, I was a little worried after a prolonged period of about 4 mins when the screen was blank but it came back up asking for Apple id and password which I put back in and now seems better than ever.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    My work supplied iPhone 5C has 10.3.3 software and says it is up to date, so won't update to the new 10.3.4 software.

    If it causes any issues I will get it replaced with a later model.

    UPDATE:
    Looks like this issue doesn't apply to the 5C, just the 5?

    This is why Apple and iPhones are better than Android phones.

    What Android phone that is now 7 years old is still getting updates from the manufacturer?
    Even the iPhone 4s got this update, which is 8 years old.

    We have both of those iPhones at home so glad we won't have to replace them just yet.

    The iPhone 5C isn't affected:
