EDIT - This method may NOT work and you could lock up your iPad or worse! Anyone staying on iOS 6 try this method to delete the auto iOS 7 download? See post by user nzzzzzz and reply on next page... https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5379403?start=0&tstart=0 His posted method is below, sounds risky as you actually have to start installing iOS7... Method B: Open Settings->General->Software Update, Click "Install Now". There will be a prompt says "Verifying update...", Wait until this prompt disappear, there will be a spinning wheel on the black background. Immediately press and hold both of the power and home buttons at the same time. DO NOT release the power and home buttons for about 10 seconds. Your device will reboot. It's done. The automatically downloaded firmware will have been deleted. Now read part 1 to prevent automatically downloading in the future. Then to stop it from downloading again, immediately check for updates manually . Instead of downloading the update it will just leave a button to download and install.
