  • Now check for “Software Update”
  • Finally, tap on “Automatic updates” and from there turn it off.


For iOS 9.2 users, there is no good way to remove the Update notification and once the update is available it will automatically download and install the update. That happens when you connect your phone to a mobile connection or Wi-Fi. So technically the only way to avoid it is by not connecting your phone to any internet connection at all. But if you really want the old version back, refer to the second solution, which is to delete the update. (Automatic update: Delete the update.)

For most cases, this does not always work. There are some who tried deleting the sudden update but it keeps on coming back. So, it is suggested to block the update through your router. This way you won’t be bothered by it. You can refer to solution number 1 to be guided.


All methods are guaranteed to disable iOS 13 update notifications. All steps are tried and tested. The instructions are based on the latest iOS version.

  • Question is, can we skip this update and delete it (as I did) and still take later updates?
  • The current update, 13.7 that Apple is pushing out includes automatic contact tracing without needing an app. I'm suspicious even though it claims we can 'opt out'
