I SLEPT ON MY PHONE and suddenly it has started downloading iOS 8.
Wow. Just Wow.
I don't even like the look of 7
You might as well switch to something different cause i have news for you... everything is heading towards that direction and it's not changing anytime soon. Not trying to be a dick or something, just the cold truth. Even macs looks like iOS 7 all of a sudden.
Which is why I did 7 last night. And I had a couple of apps I needed to update as well so it was inevitable. I have a big event in 3 weeks that I need my phone for, so no way can I do a first update until after that. I always wait till .01
I hear what you're saying. I'm keeping my 08 MB on ML but I'm due for a new one at some point.
I just have to say I REALLY don't like the flat look. I know I'll get used to it but ugh
It stopped downloading now ? And ... you rely on your iPhone4s for a big event where you sleep on it in the night ?
Didn't want to bother you.
Is seems that the OTA update is not stopping at all. I investigated a litte bit, some jailbreak the device, some restore it from iTunes. Seems not to be feasible in your case.
OK, here we go: Fill up the storage of your iPhone with some data ( Videos, Pictures, whatever you have ). Make sure you fill it up as much as you can. Then enable WIFI again. This way the update MUST fail.
In case you do, please report back.
I updated to iOS 7 last night. I woke up to find the phone updating to iOS 8! The ipad is not.
How did this happen and how do I stop it? I've turned off wifi for the time being.
OP, what iOS 7 version are you on?
My 5s came with 7.1.1 and I could have deleted the 7.1.2 update from my device if I wanted under settings : general : usage.
Updates will generally download (not install) on their own when there's enough space, the device is on WiFi, and usually connected to a power source. again, this is just for download, not install, which does require user interaction before that would initiate. Since iOS 7.1 there's an ability to delete a downloaded update, so if one gets downloaded, you should be able to delete it and that's basically it.
