Safari 12 for older devices and versions of iOS

There are some devices from Apple which don't support iOS 13 and are thus forced to stick with iOS 12 - this means that the latest version of Safari is in the 12.x stream. So technically, this means that the 12.x stream of Safari on iOS 12 is still supported. Apple released a Security Update for it on October 28, 2019.

iOS 12 is still considered the latest version of iOS for: iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and 3, and iPod touch (6th generation).

Platform Version Release Date
Safari on iOS 12 (Some older device models) 12.1.2 2019-07-22

Safari on macOS

Safari comes installed on all Apple computers, so you shouldn't need to download it. To make sure that it's up to date, use the Software Update feature by clicking the Apple logo in the very top left of the screen, choosing "Software Update" and following the instructions.

Apple used to provide a few different versions which were all the "latest version" for that platform; eg Maverick's version was the Safari 7 branch, Yosemite's version was the Safari 8 branch but they were all the "latest versions"... As of September 2015, Apple now seem to be keeping the one branch (Safari 9) across the few most recent versions of OS X.

Safari on Windows

Apple don't make or support Safari for Windows any more. The last version of Safari for Windows was 5.17 (released in May 2012). Apple no longer provide it for downloading. There are much more up to date browsers for Windows, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Safari on iOS

Apple make Safari for iPhones, iPads and iPod, and similar to macOS, it comes installed by default. You should keep your device's copy of iOS up to date, because doing this will ensure that Safari is up to date as well.
