As per the company, all the iPhone 5 users are notified to do the over-the-air update before November 3. iPhone 5 models will stop connecting to the internet if you fail to do the OTA update. This update is to resolve the GPS time rollover issue which began in April this year. It is a feature which requires the right date and time for the smartphone to work.
