Apple on Monday released iOS 12.5.1, an update for older iPhones that are not compatible with iOS 14. The update provides a COVID-19 Exposure Notifications bug fix.
Users with compatible devices can download the iOS 12.5.1 update as an over-the-air update on eligible devices, in the Settings app. To access the new software, go to “Settings” -> “General” -> “Software Update.”
Apple in December released an iOS 12.5 update, which enabled the use of the Exposure Notifications system to older devices.
Today’s update addresses a bug that could cause Exposure Notifications to incorrectly display logging profile language.
Apple’s Exposure Notifications system is now available in multiple U.S. states, as well as numerous countries. States adopting the system include North Dakota, Arizona, Delaware, Nevada, Alabama, Colorado, Wyoming, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, Washington, Connecticut, Nevada, the District of Columbia, and California.
