Almost everyone doesn’t want to have their iPhone nag them about installing iOS updates. These nagging notifications are just a waste of time and space on your device.
You can stop this annoying process by turning off the automatic update feature on your iPhone and deleting the installer. This will stop the ‘Install Now/Remind Later’ alert windows from popping up in the future.
1. Go to System Preferences
The Settings app is a great place to make changes to the way your iPhone operates. It contains options for changing ringtones, adjusting the way apps work, and more. It’s also a great place to find information about your phone.
The app is located at the top of the screen, and you can access it by tapping the Search button on the Home Screen or typing “settings” into the search field. If you’re using an iPad, you can use the search bar on the App Library or the Spotlight Search button to reach it.
You can also go to the System Preferences pane to change settings that affect how you interact with your Mac and iPhone. This includes things like your Apple ID and Bluetooth, which help Continuity work seamlessly between the two devices.
In addition, you can adjust how you get notifications on your device. You can turn off alerts for everyone or certain people, or you can choose a recurring notification schedule. You can also enable Focus mode, which reduces distractions and helps you stay focused.
If you don’t want to keep seeing notifications from iOS about software updates, you can disable them. You can do so in the Settings menu by selecting General and then Software Update.
Another option is to turn off automatic downloads for apps. This will prevent the iPhone from installing iOS updates while connected to Wi-Fi.
But you may not be able to remove all nagging software update notifications. Some users report that iOS re-downloads the update after it’s installed. That’s why it’s a good idea to turn off auto updates and delete the latest update from your device.
Once you do that, the next time an iOS update becomes available, your phone will not remind you to install it. This is a great solution for those who don’t like getting nagging notifications about software updates.
If you’re still not happy with the nagging reminders that iOS offers to download updates, you can also stop them from re-downloading. You can do that by turning off automatic updates on your iPhone or iPad. You can also delete the latest update from your storage and avoid connecting to Wi-Fi. Alternatively, you can downgrade your iPhone to an older version of iOS and then turn off automatic updates.
2. Go to Notifications
One of the most annoying parts about iOS is that it always reminds you to update your iPhone or iPad when a new version is available. The notifications are not particularly informative and it can be quite frustrating, especially if you don’t want to get the latest software update on your device.
However, it is possible to disable this alert. You can do so by going to Settings and scrolling down to the General tab. There, you can turn off the Automatic Updates option, which will prevent the iPhone from installing any new software updates when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Another way to prevent this alert is by deleting the latest update from your storage, which will stop it from showing up in the future. In order to check this out, you’ll need to go to your Storage & iCloud Usage section of Settings and look for the iOS update there. If it’s there, tap the update to see more information about it and then select Delete Update.
Notifications on the iPhone have long been criticized for being clunky and confusing, but Apple is trying to improve this area with iOS 16. Instead of appearing at the top of your screen as they did in older versions, they’re now displayed as a number of dots on the bottom.
You can also choose a different display mode for your notifications, including an expanded list view or a stack of them. These options are available in the Notification Center, and they’re incredibly easy to change.
If you have a lot of notifications to handle, the best way to manage them is by using the Notification Center. This keeps all your notifications in one place, and you can easily access it at any time, even from the Lock Screen.
To open the Notification Center, swipe up on your iPhone’s Lock Screen. Notifications will flow in from the bottom and appear in chronological order. You can also swipe left on a notification or group of notifications to hide them or perform quick actions like opening the app, tapping an action button, and more.
3. Go to Updates
When Apple releases a new iOS update, it’s common for it to prompt your iPhone to install it. This happens because iOS updates are often accompanied by bug fixes and security patches. If you’re not happy with your device downloading the latest iOS, there are ways to prevent this from happening.
One way to do this is to turn off automatic updates in the Settings app. Alternatively, you can disable the notification badges that appear on your device when an update is ready to download.
You can also delete a software update from your iPhone if you’re not using it. To do this, open the Settings app on your device and go to General. From there, tap Storage & iCloud Usage and then manage storage.
Next, locate the iOS version currently being downloaded and then tap Delete Update to stop it from downloading. This will stop it from nagging you in the future and avoid any unwanted updates from re-downloading.
4. Go to System Updates
If you have an iPhone that has been set up to automatically download software updates, you may want to go to System Updates on your phone to turn off the notification. This is a great way to ensure your phone stays up-to-date without interrupting your normal routine.
Apple uses software updates to roll out new features, bug fixes and other improvements for its iPhone, improving both functions and security. These updates are usually released in phases, so not everyone will get them at the same time.
You can also check to see if an update is available by going to Settings > General, then tapping Software Update. If it is, you will be prompted to download the update and agree to its terms and conditions.
Before you can start downloading and installing an iOS update, your iPhone will need to have enough storage space for it. Most iOS updates are between 1.5 and 2 GB in size, so you should have about 4 GB free to safely download and install them.
One way to make sure your iPhone is ready for an update is to back up your phone with iCloud before you try to install it. This will allow you to restore your data if something goes wrong with the update.
