    My babygirl suddently started to sing for the first time and I ran over to get the iphone to film her.

    So, slided to open the phone, but before I get to open the cam I get the message, -theres a new OS update blablabla. Ok ok later, -click, - are you sure, yesyesyes, click again looking for the cam app, found it, click, but then another OS message- autodownload not enabled, cancel or ok. I click Ok, I will look later ok, but still the system prefs opens. Whaaaaaaa. NOTNOW! Close the system prefs app, look for the cam app, and finally open the cam app:

    BOOM the magical babysinging moment was over.

    Thank you, but is it really nessesary to remind me everyday about the OS update?

    the hectoring is lousy and worth multiple complaint threads IMO. ;) microsoft got their fair share of flak for being overly aggressive in this regard and i'm sure every apple fan was happy to pile on in those cases. just because apple does it now doesn't mean that its suddenly more right.

    i will say the most productive course is for anyone bothered to use apple's feedback channels, but its worth discussion here, because more awareness helps people realize "hey yeah i do want to add my voice to this choir." and those who agree with apple are welcome to keep enjoying their products. :)

    also for security arguments, i still think that should be more up to the user to weigh the benefits without apple being overly aggressive (i.e. redownloading over and over when plugged in on wifi).

    if newest hardware/software implies most secure and anything less is irresponsible, then why don't we just implement draconian policies of shutting down every person's phone the moment something newer arrives?

    heck if anything less than "the most secure option available" is the only acceptable choice, lets do independent audits of all phones on the market and shut down all but the single model that is deemed most secure?

    Update to the latest version... Simple fix plus lots of security fixes

    Do you have the camera enabled on the lockscreen? If so you could just swipe up the camera in the bottom right corner, it's faster and no messages would have popped up. It's also accessible from Control Center, just swipe up from the bottom of the screen, no need to search for an app.

    Totally agree.

    I do not want to update just yet as I'm hoping a JB will come sooner or later and I like to read early adopters reviews on how it's working on their devices.

    Ok let a pop up happen at first but a choice of 'Don't remind me again' should be an option to choose :)

    What if I do not want to update? I use this iphone with my Pioneer appradio in the car. IF I update, I can loose compability with the radio, and there are all sorts of bugs with IOS 9 and the AVIC. check the forums if you want. This is propably not apples fault but Pioneer who stop updating their stuff a week after selling the car radios. I should have stopped updating on IOS 6 for this reason alone, but I usually like updating for all other reasons.

    I think the point of my post and others is that the hole IOS user experience is broken with this naggin. Its not nessecary, tell me once, ok but then leave me be. I lost a big moment (AGAIN) because of the nagging and it is irritating.

    As the other thread that was linked earlier on the same topic mentions, there are ways to deal with that.

    if "just update and accept it" is the advice, its not particularly helpful.

    if deleting the update from storage is the advice, it doesn't work, because it will just re-download again.

    if avoiding being plugged in and on wifi is the advice, or keep your device almost full, those are pretty impractical concessions that would require people to permanently change their usage patterns.

    unless there are some unknown further hacks, the only thing that people can do at this point is file feedback and hope apple provides an option to disable these pop ups.

    Not sure what to say aside from deleting the update has been working fine on a couple of devices that I don't always upgrade right away. (Again, as it was all already covered in the other thread on the same topic.)

    What's the issue with 9.3.2? I know 9.3.3 beta 1 has some problems with standby usage but 9.3.2 has been solid as a rock.

    My wife is the kind of user that doesn't do updates, I do them for her. And I haven't had time to grab her phone for 9.3.2 yet. I was the car just now and she wanted to make a call. Up pops the reminder and I hear her say multiple expletives about the &*%$# reminder box that she had to deal with before even using her phone. Yes I'll get around to the update but in the meantime here's a novice user that is completely annoyed because of the insistence of this stupid alert.

    I think Apple at least should allow enterprise user to either completely disable update, or dramatically increase default update intervals. Then, us conventional customers can borrow those tools to configure our device with those settings. But given Apple often don't bother touching enterprise market, I doubt if this will happen.

    Seems like the idea for a novice and/or typical user that doesn't know better is to have the updates installed as automatically as possible given that otherwise most of them would never even know about them, let alone bother with them.
