    I've been constantly reminded to upgrade to iOS 10.2.1 for a while now. Every time it's come up I've clicked later as I didn't want to install it.

    This morning the message popped up again so I clicked later expecting it to disappear. Instead the phone crashes and then loads back up to the home screen. Before I can unlock the phone the message pops up again so I click later and it crashes again.

    I tried it one more time but the same thing happened so I tried turning the phone off. Once I powered down the phone it then decided to install the update!

    All I'm gonna say is it was a good job I didn't need the phone for an emergency as it was stuck updating for around 15 minutes.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Don't click Later. Always click details, then press home button.

    Later means "yes I trust Apple to not make an update that makes my phone worse"

    Not just that, but make sure to go into storage settings and delete the downloaded update as that is what gets the update prompts to show up. Beyond that the tvOS profile can be installed to even prevent the automatic download of updates (and thus related prompts).

    10.2.1 includes patches to a number of vulnerabilities. Pretty silly not to install it

    Yeah lesson learned I guess. The thing I find really strange is I never ever accepted the T&C's to install the update yet it still installed. Didn't know that was possible tbh o_O

    Yeah true, just had a lot going on recently and it was never a good time to install it. Oh well it's installed now, although I'm slightly miffed though as the battery symptoms everyone has been moaning about has started occurring since the update.

    That's why you should install tvOS profile mentioned on forum many times - disables OTA updates even without jailbreak. But now you can't downgrade even though.

    Thanks. Can that be done without an AppleTV?

    Sure, it's just a profile file that is installed from Safari basically.

    Samsung owners: Can't wait for the next update, complains about not getting them fast enough
    iPhone owners: Complain about getting updates and work to make sure they don't get installed

    Well, for a small subset of iPhone users that might be true.

    I look forward to the updates (eg. running 10.3b2 as we speak)
