    You can't.

    That latest iOS version that is compatible with that device.

    You need a newer device to use iOS 14.5.

    I agree with @SwiftBeach. Unfortunately, your iPhone is too old to update t iOS 14.5.

    As others have aptly said, your iPhone model/age puts it beyond new OS support. And I believe your model is also outside the window of receiving security patches (though I’m not 100% certain). IPhones beyond OS support but still receive security updates can continue to be used. Whether apps/features continue to work will be on a case by case basis though compatibility will get worse as months go on. However, if your iPhone is also beyond seeing security patch versions, I urge you to get a new iPhone. Once security vulnerabilities are no longer patched, it is imho too much of a security risk to be connecting the iphone to the internet.

    Your iPhone 5 is technically obsolete, although It will still do some things, it won’t update iOS any more. Keep the phone with some charge on board, In an emergency it’ll do as a comms device.

    If there is an older version of the app on the App Store that will work on your older iPhone. I believe the App Store will give you a pop up that lets you download the older version of the app. The older app needs to be made available by the app developer, though.

    True, I can not update my original iPad cause of the same reason. No biggie on this the older devices still work perfectly.
