Interestingly, you can not upgrade to iOS 11 on iPhone 5 and 5C smartphone because Apple itself won't offer any support. The company also released iOS 11.2.2 a few days ago that catered the "Spectre" issues and other serious hardware-based vulnerabilities. Apple has just seeded the fifth pre-release version of the upcoming iOS 11.2.5 to developers and beta testers. If you're a public beta tester and are willing to try the beta software before it arrives as a final release, you can get it through over-the-air. But more than likely, because of the version number, iOS 11.2.5 focus on smaller bug fixes and behind-the-scenes improvements.

In terms of features, iOS 11.2.5 brings new additions that allow Siri to play daily news podcasts on the current event.

Apple has released the iOS 11.2.5 software to developers so far it has not been released to Apple's public beta testing program as yet. The feature will let Siri retrieve podcasts from the Washington Post by default, but users will be given the option to switch to CNN, Fox News and NPR. Hence, activating Siri by physically pressing the side button or Home button of iOS devices would only lead to the standard Apple news headlines. You should either upgrade to iOS 11 or purchase a new smartphone such as iPhone 7 or iPhone 8 series.
