LTS does mean "long term support", i.e. you get security fixes for Qt 5.12
until December 2021.

You won't get such fixes (or any upstream support) for Qt 5.13. However, you're
already using an OS which isn't supported by Apple anymore (and not recieving
any security fixes).

You can "pip install PyQt5==5.12.3" or use the "Release history" page on PyPI:
