“How to turn off iOS update notifications in iOS 17? I do not want to be notified when there is an iOS update. Clicking on update later is not enough to get it to stop...another reminder pops up instantly reminding me about auto installs etc. Please tell me there is a way to shut this off. ”
iPhone users may always encounter such annoying situations: When you get used to the current iOS version, a message box reminds you to update iOS to the latest version.
Unfortunately, Apple has not given much thought to users who are not willing to update the iOS system in real-time; there are no "Never Remind" options available.
As a result, users are harassed by the iOS update notification daily. There is no other way but to tick "Remind Me Later." This will worsen if you accidentally press the "Install Now" button.
Well, it is because Apple wants all its iPhone and iPad users to be on the latest iOS version. This is a good thing for most people since an up-to-date iOS always comes with many new features and bug fixes. Also, it is suitable for Apple to manage the user base.
So, Apple provides a feature named "Automatic Download" to encourage users to update to the latest version of iOS. This will download updates in the background and push you to install it.
It is annoying if there is a constant pop-up for iOS update notifications while doing other tasks. Don't worry. In this article, we will show you 4 troubleshooting tips to turn off iOS 17 update notifications on iPhone. Read on to find out what you can do.
The Automatic Updates are enabled on iPhone/iPad by default, and you can turn off the option to stop getting iOS update notifications. This won't help with the current update, but it will prevent iOS from downloading updates automatically in the future.
Follow the steps below to turn Automatic Updates off to stop future update notifications:
You can also delete the downloaded iOS update and avoid Wi-Fi on your iPhone to turn off the iOS update notification. Here’s how to do that:
Another method to turn off iOS update notifications is to install a tvOS beta software profile. This process will enroll your iPhone into the Apple TV beta software program. As a result, when your iPhone automatically looks for iOS updates, it will only find tvOS betas and assume that no iOS updates are available. Follow the steps below:
Step 1: On your iPhone, launch Safari and go to Beta Profiles to download the tvOS beta configuration profile for Apple TV. You can also download the profile on a computer and AirDrop it to your iPhone.
Step 2: Once the profile is downloaded, you will be redirected to the Settings app to install it. Click Install in the upper right corner of the interface, enter the screen password and follow the prompts to continue.
Step 3: The profile will be installed and require you to restart the iPhone to apply the changes. After the reboot, you can go to Settings > General > Software Update to check if the software is up-to-date.
What if you want to upgrade to the newest iOS version? Don’t worry; you can make changes. Go to Settings > General > Profile and find the tvOS beta software profile, then click Delete Profile to delete the installed profile. After that, reboot the iPhone, and the latest version will be detected.
As mentioned above, even though the iOS update has been deleted or disabled from Settings, the iOS updates will still be automatically downloaded when your iPhone is connected to WiFi. Then how do you stop iOS update notifications?
For users who never want to receive the iOS update notification, this option is advisable – blocking the Apple software update domains on Router or Gateway connecting to the internet. The process varies on different Router that you use. Here are the processes on how to do it:

Above are 4 ways to turn off iOS update notifications on an iPhone or iPad. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. You can choose the most effective one depending on your situation.
Suppose you’ve already updated your iPhone to the latest iOS 17 and are now faced with regret.

Please note that the downgrade process will erase all the existing data on your device, so you’d better take a backup of your iPhone before doing that.
