    I’m sorry to hear that, BrixtonBoy. I’m sure something will work out for you, though.

    I finally managed to get IOS12 downloaded and installed on my 5s with the help of J.A. and SciFan57 but after re-installing all the apps I had to offload I’m now running short on storage. I guess it’s time to move some stuff to the cloud. That’ll be a whole new arena for me. I’ve been avoiding it until now.

    Here’s another oddity with IOS 12 - when typing a text in landscape mode, once you’ve addressed it and begin typing, the keyboard covers up the message you’re typing. All I can see is the addressee.

    If I then rotate to portrait mode I can see the message I’m typing. It’s inconvenient to me that way but rotating back to landscape mode covers the message again. This is very annoying.

    Can you scroll up to see what you’re typing?

    Nope. Tried it a number of times but it won’t scroll up. Oddly, though, once I receive a response I can rotate to landscape mode and it works.

    As they say, ‘go figure’....

    They should have dropped support for iPhone 5 a long time ago. I mean that thing was release 6 years ago! It's older than both my children.. sheesh.... Any electronic that last me longer than 3 years is a miracle. If it makes it to year 5, it's even more of a stretch.

    I'm surprised Apple even chose to support it anymore. Damn, that thing is ancient.

    Thanks for your input, Junior. My phone isn’t near as ancient as I am but it still works just fine and serves my needs. It’s just a little short on memory.

    Have a great day......

    They did. iOS 10.3.3 is the latest version that will run on the iPhone 5, with limited functionality.

    Hmmm. Well, my iPhone 5s seems to be running just fine with IOS 12 on it, albeit as I said, it’s a tad bit short on memory. I’ll have to manage the storage more closely but my philosophy is ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.

    Barring a hardware fault, it’ll likely last until the battery will no longer hold a charge.

    Some further info since my last post here about updating to iOS12. Siri has been spotty at best. Two more times I’ve had to turn off Siri then reset network settings and turn Siri back on to get it working again. I’ve done a hard reset but it hasn’t helped. I haven’t seen where others are experiencing this same issue so I’m guessing maybe it’s time to restore my iPhone 7 as new and set it back up manually rather than from a backup.

    Update:
    Since the post above I have updated iOS to 12.1 and suddenly, all seems right with Siri again. Go figure, right?!?!

    I've had no problem with Siri on iOS 12.
