When there is a new software update available for the iPhone or iPad, it will be automatically downloaded if the device has a Wi-Fi connection. This is great because it makes us forget to manually update the product, and as soon as the download is done, it will ask us to update the system.


But if you have an iPhone or iPad that you do not want to update for whatever reason and the update has been downloaded, there is no reason to keep it, because it only takes up space. Let’s see how to remove that iOS update and save space on our iOS devices.

Remove the iOS update to gain space on iPhone or iPad


If you are a handyman and you like the risk, you can always open your iPhone channel and change the NAND memory for a 512GB. For those of us who are not so skilled, there is a very simple way to recover valuable gigs by deleting the update. Not only will save a lot of space on your iPhone or iPad, but you will also stop seeing the notification that an update is available.

  • Open Settings on iPhone or iPad.
  • Go to General> Storage.
  • You will see a list of apps installed on the device, among all these apps, there will also be the software version that has been downloaded.
  • Click on it and then press Delete.

Once this is done, you will no longer see an “update available” in the system settings. On the other hand, keep in mind that updates take up a lot of MB, so you’ll save a lot of space.

Can you avoid automatic updates and downloads of software? Unfortunately not, Apple does not allow you to nip in the bud with this issue, so you will always be downloaded the latest version available for the device.

That is it! This way we will be able to remove the updates and save a lot of space on our iPhone and iPad devices. If you have any other queries regarding the memory full let us know in the comment box. We will get back to you as soon as possible to solve all your queries.
