Hi, planning to update from iOS9.3 to the latest iOS10.3.1 for the old iphone 5 as iphone 6 water damaged. I have about 4.5GB space. Is this update safe?

Do not upgrade , do not upgrade, the iphone 5,5s, and 6 cannot fully handle the ios 10 update without lags or stalling software.
Huh?

That's an iPhone 5 there in my pic, running 10.3.1. I've experienced no lag. Of course, if you're trying to do things like intense games on a 5 running 10.3.1 that might be why you say this, but that's not what I use my 5 for.
