We continue our look at Apple’s iOS 10.2 update with the most important things to know about the iPhone 5 iOS 10.2 update and its performance.

The iPhone 5 is getting older This gives greater importance to the flagship before each update Apple releases. IOS updating old devices can have a significant impact on the performance of a device. Positive or negative.

Like many other iPhone 5 owners, we have wrestling decisions that jump to Apple’s iOS 10 each. In other words, our work is guinea pigs, we installed in our equipment on the latest version of the best.

Apple’s most recent update is a big one. The iPhone 5 iOS 10.2 update is much larger than the iOS 10.1.1 update and it brings some notable changes to the aging smartphone.

If you’re making the move from the iOS 10.1.1 update, your iOS 10.2 update will be well over 100MB in size. If you’re coming from something older, you can expect your iOS 10.2 update to be much larger thanks to the features and fixes from previous iOS upgrades.

The iOS 10.2 is an important update for the iPhone 5 and that’s why we’re taking a close look at it today. This roundup will take you through our impressions of the software and it will guide you through some of the key things to keep in mind as we push into 2017.

We’ll continue to update this roundup with new details as we get them so keep an eye out for frequent changes.

The iPhone 5 iOS 10.2 update is a big one and it’ll take you a few minutes to download and install. It took us about five minutes to download the update over a fast Wi-Fi speed network and about 10 minutes to finish up the installation.


We recommend setting aside 20 quiet minutes where you can monitor both the download and installation without distractions.

We’ve been using the iPhone 5 iOS 10.2 update on our aging AT&T model for a little over two weeks now and the update is, for the most part, holding up.

The iPhone 5’s battery continues to work miracles. We haven’t noticed any abnormal battery drain during our time with iOS 10.2.

If you download iOS 10.2 and your battery starts acting up, give it a couple of days. It sometimes takes it a few days to settle in.

We’ve tested the iPhone 5 and its new update with several different ISPs, routers and Bluetooth devices. We haven’t noticed any major issues. AT&T’s LTE and 4G networks are working fine as well.

Shortly after installing iOS 10.2 on iPhone 5 we noticed a random restart. We noticed two days ago. The problem seems to be isolated incidents, but we will continue to monitor the situation as we enter 2017.

IPhone 5 UI has not given us any new problems. Animation and conversion speed and fluid and we have not experienced any delay when opening the control center.

The device and its user interface are still lagging behind when opening folders and some apps but this is something that is now expected to be four years old on the phone.

If you’re already on iOS, iOS 10.2 and its features / fixes / patches make it worthy of serious look. If you are in the old stuff, make sure you jump deeper before more feedback. The second or third opinion will not hurt.
