iOS 12 Introduces Automatic Software Updates

iOS 12 Introduces Automatic Software Updates

Posted June 5, 2018 at 2:39pm by iClarified
The first beta of iOS 12 introduces a new Automatic Updates toggle under the Software Update menu. When toggled ON, your iPhone will automatically install firmware updates as they become available.

Currently, the feature defaults to OFF; however, if enabled, this could help Apple increase adoption of its latest software update.

It's likely that updates will be performed at night and when your iPhone is plugged into a charger.

Can’t wait to jailbreak so I can easily avoid any and all updates.

Never be an early adopter of new OS. Many bugs.

At least it's got a toggle... hopefully the next tvOS beta profile for iPhone will disable the option entirely.

Will the update be done in the background, or will the iPhone shut down for the update?
