Stay­ing off the grid

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I have an iPhone 4 that I’m us­ing as a glo­ri­fied iPod touch. It doesn’t have a SIM in it any­more but I still connect to Wi-Fi. It’s run­ning iOS 8.1 and all my apps keep try­ing to up­date au­to­mat­i­cally. I don’t need or want them to do that – they all work fine as they are. Can I stop them updating with­out dis­con­nect­ing from Wi-Fi? Sally-Ann Mum­ford

Yes. You can this be­hav­iour off for app up­dates in the iTunes & App Store sec­tion of Set­tings, un­der Au­to­matic Down­loads. You can’t dis­able up­dates per app though – it’s ei­ther on for all apps, or off for all of them. How­ever, this switch only dis­ables au­to­matic down­load­ing of up­dates. They can still be in­stalled man­u­ally from the App Store’s Up­dates tab.
