Update released for old iPhones
While Apple continues with the iOS 14 update on iPhone models, it does not neglect old devices. In this context, approximately 1 month after the release of iOS 12.5, the iOS 12.5.1 update was offered to users. Under normal circumstances, Apple does not include any features in the updates it publishes for its old phones.

However, COVID-19 Exposure Notifications, which were available for the epidemic that swept the world, were brought to older models with iOS 12.5. This newly published update resolves an error detected in this feature.
