Sticking with 7 for now
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?
