    Im on 9.0.2 as most are and that red badge from the settings prompting me to update is very annoying. How can I hide/get rid of it?

    Are you jailbroken? If so, try going to settings, general, storage and icloud usage, manage storage, and then deleting the update file that appears there. Then, go to settings, general, software update and it should check and never finish.

    I am JB not seeing the fw update file anywhere in the storage. I see my device backups, apps taking space, documents and data etc but not where I can delete this update file?

    Just add Karen's Pineapple repo and install Mikoto.

    I really didn't want to install something that can do a complete UI overhaul can't these kind of apps drain battery or just make things sluggish? I was hoping for something more simple

    Any follow up here can I get a screenshot of where to find and delete this update file, please?

    Well…none of the normal blockers that I've used in iOS 7 or 6 work anymore. They haven't worked since iOS 7.

    Mikoto is all I can suggest. If the rest of what it does is not your cup of tea then you can leave the toggles off if you like.

    And as far as I know it does not drain any battery or make things slow. At least, I am not experiencing any of that.

    This works, but it's more for removing all badges, not for selecting one to remove. You have to whitelist apps.

    No, you can just blacklist Settings, assign an Activator action, remove the badge on Settings, then remove the app.

    I stand corrected. I guess this is the answer to the OPs question.

    Is RemoveBadges iOS 9 compatible?

    As you can see from Cydia, not officially, but I didn't have a problem.

    You can remove both, though Activator is probably the most popular tweak there is.

    Any way to remove the badge, if you are not JB?

    No, but it's not too late to jailbreak if you haven't updated to 9.1.

    @self: Thank you for the answer. Then, I have to live with it as no JB for me.
