Skip­ping iOS sys­tem up­dates

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

Q When a new ver­sion of iOS is re­leased, my iPad au­to­mat­i­cally down­loads it and gives me the op­tion to in­stall it ‘later’ or ‘now’. Can you skip an up­date al­to­gether? I’d like the op­tion to wait for a patch re­lease and jump straight to that when iOS 9 comes out. Mark Tan­ner A You can’t stop the up­date from down­load­ing but you aren’t re­quired to in­stall it, ever. Pro­vided you can cope with the nag­ging red ‘1’ over the Set­tings icon, let­ting you know there’s an up­date wait­ing. There’s no way to get rid of this ex­cept by jail­break­ing your iPad or in­stalling the up­date. You’ll also lose a bit more space on your iPad, be­cause the up­date file will sit there un­til you let it in­stall.
