It’s new and it will be available to everyone as soon as iOS 13.6 has gone from beta to public version. For a long time, the Cupertino company has offered a feature which consists in automatically downloading and installing a new version of iOS. It installs on your device at night while you sleep and your iPhone is charged on the sector.

Now, with iOS 13.6 you can choose whether or not to install the new, freshly downloaded version. A novelty which aims to give freedom to users who want to install by themselves the new update.

It has happened several times to see an update of iOS bring a problem of autonomy, a problem of stability … Unfortunately with the automatic function which dealt with the download and the automatic installation, it was already too late to reverse the day after the update was released.

This change affects users of iPhone, iPad with iPadOS 13.6 as well as iPod Touch. Apple explains in the settings:

Automatically install software updates overnight after downloading. You will receive a notification before installing updates. Your iPhone must be charged and connected to Wi-Fi to complete the update.

If you disable this feature, the installation will no longer be done automatically, but the iPhone will ask you once the update is downloaded if you want to install it. As long as you do not say “Yes”, the software version will be put aside and will wait wisely to be installed.
