Whether or not this is acceptable to you may depend on a variety of things, like what your opinion of a particular i OS update is, whether you’re able to troubleshoot a potentially failed i OS install, whether you’re busy or not, and perhaps even principle.
On the plus side, you’ll be on the latest version of i OS by doing so.
The good news is there are several methods to get i OS update reminders from constantly appearing on your device, each takes a different approach, from postponing the update, to removing it, to giving in and updating, to even blocking the update server. If you take this route, get used to pressing “Later” and “Remind Me Later” repeatedly, as in 24 hours you’ll be asked about it again. And another 24 hours later, you can go through the process yet again, until you either give in or move along with another of the options below.
When you see the i OS Software Update reminder, choose “Later” and then choose “Remind Me Later” – don’t worry, it will remind you later. The best way to stop being nagged about impending i OS updates available is to delete the i OS update from the i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch, and then avoid wi-fi.
Don’t worry, you won’t lose the ability to install the i OS update, you can download it again yourself by going to Settings Software Update, or just join wi-fi and leave the device unattended and it will download automatically without prompting.
