Question: ios 9 automatic download making me furious
Is there any way to prevent auto download of ios updates other than the general settings option for updates which does not impact ios updates but only app updates?
Here's the scenario: I have satellite isp and the forced auto download of IOS 9.0, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2, on multiple ios devices, have utilized all my paid bandwidth for the entire month effectively putting me and my business offline unless I purchase more bandwidth.
It's an issue every single ios update but the rapidity of recent updates and owning multiple ios devices currently have magnified the impact punishingly. This has been complained about for years has never been addressed other than forum posts online suggesting non-solutions like "filling the device so full of data that no more fits", jail breaking my devices, or apple store staff suggesting "disabling wifi", which is akin to a car dealer suggesting one can save gas by not driving ones car after you buy it.
Yes auto up date if off, OFF, OOOOOFFFF, OOOOOOFFFFFF!
Any suggestions disabling ios auto downloads and allowing full functionality of my devices is welcome.
A consideration offered by apple to somehow compensate for all the additional bandwidth purchases over the years is also welcome.
The logic beyond this function is beyond me. Why auto download if its not desired and not requested when the consequences can have such annoying and costly results. I also wonder how many public wifi networks have been steamrolled this month by every apple device trying to download all these updates. Its just impolite at best!
End of rant. Productive comments appreciated. Thanks!
