Like an arrogant mother, Apple will constantly annoy you with annoying red bubble warnings about iOS updates that can be instantly installed. Fortunately, you do not have to let this problem go because there are ways to prevent your iPhone from getting OTA updates and their prompts, regardless of whether your device is jailbroken or not.
Avoiding iOS updates is a must if you jailbreak your device, as this can eliminate your precious jailbreak and also result in data loss if an error occurs during the update. And while it's good for general security, keeping updates up might be useful, even if you're not jailbroken; Maybe your older iPhone works best in its current version, or you just wait for a jailbreak to become available for your current firmware, or you just want to update it after you know the software is free from major flaws , 1
Method 1: Non-Jailbroken Devices
Disabling Over-the-Air Software Updates on Your iPhone Is a Relative Issue A simple process where you install a tvOS beta software profile to turn your iPhone into the Apple TV beta software program "register". As a result, your iPhone will automatically find only tvOS betas, as it automatically searches for iOS updates, and it is assumed that no iOS updates are available.
Remember that Apple is known to patch all the holes found Hack is not in the crosshairs yet, it's only a matter of time before they focus on fixing this issue. That's why we opted for a slightly older tvOS beta profile, as you'll see below.
Tap the link below to get started Download the tvOS 11 beta profile for Apple TV. This particular profile comes from beta profiles, and although the beta profile of tvOS 12 is available and can be installed on your iPhone to perform the same task, we do not want it to work in the event of Apple patches
When you touch the link from your iPhone, a pop-up message informs you that the profile will be opened from your Settings app to view the details. Click "Allow" to confirm and proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Install the tvOS beta profile
Allow "In the command prompt highlighted above, you will immediately be taken to the page Install Profile for the recently downloaded tvOS 11 beta profile, tap "Install" in the top right corner and press "Install" again on the following page.
A final confirmation message will appear at the bottom of the screen, so tap on "Install" for the last time to complete your selection you have to restart your iPhone to apply the changes, k So click on "Restart" in the displayed message.
It is worth noting that the tvOS beta profile is on your iPhone iPhone does not interfere with other profiles that you may have installed. For example, if you're on iOS 12 beta, the tvOS beta profile can still be installed without removing the previous one, and your iPhone will continue to run normally, with the exception that no iOS can be detected anymore , including beta versions
After your iPhone restarts successfully, make sure that the tvOS profile has been enabled and disables your device's ability to receive iOS update notifications has been. Open the settings app and click on "General" and then on "Software Update" on the following page.
At this point, the annoying red notifications can still be viewed in the Settings app. However, if you go to the Software Update page, you will now be greeted with a blank page that shows your current firmware along with a notification that your software is up-to-date. From that point on, you will no longer receive OTA updates even if new iOS software updates are available.
It could not be easier to undo OTA Blocking Choose to upgrade your iPhone to the latest iOS software as you previously could. Simply navigate to the "Profile & Device Management" page under "General" in the Settings app and select "tvOS 11 Beta Software Profile".
Tap on "Remove Profile" and follow the instructions to delete it. Unlike installation, you will not be prompted to restart the device after removing the tvOS profile. You must therefore manually turn the device off and on again for the settings to take effect.
If you have a jailbreak device, you have the additional option of installing an optimization to keep OTA updates in check. There's a little more to it than just opening Cydia and installing a tweak, as you'll see below.
The tweak in question, Mikoto of Karen / angelXwind  is not available in Cydia, so you must first add a separate repo to it to get. To do this, open Cydia and tap "Sources" at the bottom of the screen to go to the Repository page. Tap "Edit" in the upper right corner and then "Add" in the upper left corner.
If you click Add, a URL prompt appears, so enter cydia.angelxwind.net in the empty field. When finished, tap Add Source and wait for the repo to install. When finished, click "Back to Cydia" and proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Install Mikoto
If Karen & # 39; s Repo has been successfully added, open Cydia's search function by tapping the magnifying glass icon at the bottom right of the screen. Next, enter "mikoto" in the search bar and tap the optimization as soon as it appears in the result box.
You are taken to Details for Mikoto , tap "Install" at the top right to go to the optimization confirmation page. Once there, select "Confirm" at the top right to complete the installation. The optimization will now be downloaded to your device. Wait a moment for the process to complete. Press "Restart SpringBoard" after restarting your iPhone and complete the installation.
Once your iPhone has been sprung, make sure that Mikoto has been successfully installed Settings and tap "Mikoto" to enter the settings page. You'll notice that "Disable OTA Software Update" is on by default – and can not be turned off. This is a security measure because performing an OTA update on your jailbroken iPhone will cause it to malfunction and result in an ongoing boot loop.
Unlike the first method, your iPhone basically goes wild Hunt for updates, Mikoto blocks your iPhone's ability to search for OTA and receive this update. The Tweak also completely removes the "Software Update" tab on the "General" page in the Settings app, as well as the red bubble alerts that inform you of available updates.
