Stick­ing with 7 for now

Mac Format - - APPLETALK -

I have an iPad mini with Retina dis­play run­ning iOS 7. I am per­fectly happy with this and see no rea­son to up­date, given the hor­ror sto­ries I’ve heard about iOS 8. The prob­lem is that the up­date has al­ready au­to­mat­i­cally down­loaded and Set­tings is show­ing the ‘1’ in the lit­tle red cir­cle to nag me into ap­ply­ing it. Is there some way to delete this and get rid of the no­ti­fi­ca­tion un­til I am ready to up­date? Daniel Poole If you look in Set­tings > Gen­eral > Soft­ware Up­date, you won’t find any op­tion to delete the down­load. In­stead it’s tucked away in Set­tings > Gen­eral > Us­age > Man­age Stor­age. Wait for the list of apps to pop­u­late the list and you should see iOS 8 there. You can then tap Delete Up­date. This will free up sev­eral gi­ga­bytes on your iPad. Ap­ple won’t au­to­mat­i­cally down­load the up­date again, un­less you go to the Soft­ware Up­date sec­tion of gen­eral set­tings. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I don’t think it’s pos­si­ble to get rid of the no­ti­fi­ca­tion badge. Maybe move the Set­tings app off the Home screen?
