Apple is soon to release its upcoming iOS 10.3.2 update, but for the first time, Apple will shut down support for several iPhone models.

The update means that iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C models will not be compatible with the iOS 10.3.2 software update, and will instead stay on the iOS 10.3.1 version. The problem is down to both models are built on 32-bit architecture and the iOS 10.3.2 update can on support 64-bit models.

It is difficult to accurately state how many models of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C have been sold, but according to data by Statistic Brain, by the end of 2016, over 90 million units of the iPhone 5 had been sold.

With Apple expected to release iOS 11 in September, along with its major iPhone 8 launch, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C users will miss out on significant upgrades.
