Though Apple officially announced that the new iOS 10.3/iOS 10.3.1 works for iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later, iPod touch 6th generation and later, some iPhone 5/5c or iPad 4 users reported that no valid updates shown on their devices. Unlike latest 64-bit iPhone products, those are relatively older iDevices running 32-bit hardware, thus you might expect a little bit delay on notification of new iOS software.
