- Schedule the update for a different date
One approach to stop iOS notifications from constantly harassing you is to postpone the update and schedule it for different date. This is quite simple to do and you only need to choose “Later’ everytime an iOS Software reminders pops up. Just select “Remind me later” and the update will be automatically postponed.
The major drawback of this method is that the update will be postponed only for 24 hours and the next day it will show up again. The option to postpone it for another 24 hours will be still available.
- Disable your iPhone Wi-Fi and remove the Software Update
You can stop iOS updates from bugging you by disabling the Wi-Fi of your device. Still, this will be effective only when the Wi-Fi will be disabled. Once you enable it the update notification will show up again
To prevent the Update from showing up do this:
- Open your iPhone Settings and go to General
- Select Storage and iCloud Usage option
- Go to Manage Storage section
- Select the iOS Update you want to stop
- Press on Delete Update and tap “Confirm”
- This will work only if you disable the Wi-Fi of your device.
Later if you change your mind, you can download the update manually and install it simply by going to Settings-Software Update. Alternatively, if you enable the Wi-Fi the update should be downloaded automatically because the software reminder will show up and will notify you that there is important update available.
- Block Apple’s Update domains
If you want to prevent some update notifications from constantly showing up, you can choose to block several domains on gateway or on the router from which you use the Wi-Fi network.
Please remember that this is somewhat risky method and may have some unexpected consequences that may even completely stop software updates for all Apple devices. Fortunately, this can be easily fixed by reversing the process.
You only need to disable two domains:
Disabling certain domains is a complex matter and you should know that it is not recommended that you do it unless you are really familiar with the matter. This method should use only more advanced users, system or network admins that are well informed and have the necessary knowledge about this stuff.
- Just get the Update
If you want to stop the update from constantly harassing you then perhaps it will not be such a bad idea to just download it.
However, remember to do backup before you update in order to ensure that everything will be safe.
In majority of the cases it is recommended that you install the new iOS updates constantly but we all know that there are situations when that is not possible.
