The latest versions of iOS automatically remind you frequently, to install whatever awaiting version of iOS is available for their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It is possible to skip the software update for 24 hours or you can choose to install it automatically in the middle of the night, often time you don’t want to install the update due to many reasons. Nonetheless, you’ll be reminded again to install the iOS software update until you do.

If you want to stop iOS software update reminders from constantly popping up on your iPhone or iPad then simply follow this article which provides the different ways to stop this software update notification reminders.

Option 1: As mentioned above it is possible to skip it for next 24 hours but the thing is it will show again once 24 hours completed which will be irritated all the time.


Option 2: The best way is to delete iOS update and avoid WiFi, doing this will stop the update reminder from appearing, but you have to disconnect from wi-fi and avoid wireless networks because the moment your device is unattended and back on WiFi the iOS update will download itself again and start pestering you again. This is less than desirable particularly for those with limited broadband bandwidth, but Apple really wants you to update that iOS device to the latest available version. Follow the steps that are given below to do so.

  • Launch the settings app and navigate General settings.
  • Under General choose Storage and iCloud usage.
  • Now tap on Manage Storage and locate the iOS software update that is nagging you and tap on it.
  • Click on delete update and confirm that you want to delete and update.
  • Disconnect from WiFi to avoid the software update downloading itself again.

Option 3: The final option is to block the update domains on whatever router or gateway the iOS devices are using to connect to the internet. This is a rather dramatic approach and can lead to many unintended issues, plus it will stop the ability to download any software update from Apple at all entirely for all devices through the network until it’s reversed. Because there is no way of preventing software updates through settings, however, this is the approach that many managed enterprise and educational facilities take with iOS devices.
