How to Turn off iOS 11 Update Notification

Last updated on December 1, 2017 by

Recently, Apple has released their new system which is the iOS 11. This looks promising, with the integration of modern tech like AR, but there are still many users who prefer the former version of the system. This is because some are afraid that the update will slow down or affect the performance of their devices especially those who own an older iPhone. Meanwhile, some are just weighing the pros and cons of the latest system before giving it a try. Even though this is the case, the constant notification on your device can get annoying as you only have the options to “Update Now” or “Remind Later”. So, to disable iOS 11 notification, scroll down for the complete details.

Detailed Guide on How to Disable iOS 11 Update Notification

Since your iOS devices have the feature “Automatic Update”, you can have the updates on your iPhone/iPad without your knowledge. For this matter, there’s no easy way out as the updates will be downloaded even when you don’t press any button. Fortunately, there’s a solution that will allow you to disable this feature and help you stop receiving reminders again. Follow the instructions below to know how.

Delete the downloaded iOS 11 Update

Turning off the Automatic Updates doesn’t mean that the downloaded update is removed on your iOS devices. Hence, it is still a must to delete the file, so you can avoid accidentally updating your iPhone/iPad. Here’s how to do this:

You can rely on it when you want to get rid of the recurring prompt. The process is very easy, but it might take a while to complete. Anyway, proceed to the next part for the guide.

  2. Upon entering, you will be prompted with a profile that you need to install. Complete the set-up process and make sure that it is trusted and verified.
