Apple is warning owners of older iPhones and iPads to update their devices to the latest iOS software by Sunday or they won’t be able to connect to the Internet.

According to the tech giant, products from 2012 and earlier will need the update before midnight on November 3 in order to maintain accurate GPS location and continue using the App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing.

The most recent software version is 10.3.4. If that’s not the number you see, you’ll need to update.

If iPhone users failed to update by November 3, they’ll need to back up and restore the phone on a computer in order to update because over-the-air software and iCloud backups won’t work.
