The day started with my Apple iPhone asking me to update the iOS version, since iOS 6.1 is now available for general public. Well, I am not really keen on updating my iPhone iOS version, of course for some jailbreak oriented purposes, and in case you are one of those who don’t want to update their iOS firmware, here’s the right thing you should do. We know exactly how infuriating the Settings app notification with ‘1‘ highlighted over it can be, and here’s how you can actually disable the software update notification in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch instantly. The only requirement is that you need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch ( Yea, this trick depends on Cydia store!). Simply follow the tutorial below to remove software update notification in your iDevice. This trick is useful as it prevents your iPhone from automatically or accidentally updating by connecting to the online store software.
Remove Software Update Notification In Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch
To remove the software update notification from Settings app on your iPhone, make sure you have Cydia app store on your device, i.e your iDevice should be jailbroken. We are going to install a cool Cydia tweak available in the BigBoss repository called Software Update Killer. Here’s how to install it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch easily. (You can install it on any version of iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, as long as it is jailbreak friendly!)
# Open the Cydia app store on your iDevice, and click on the Search button available in the bottom navigation bar.
# In the search box, type Software Update Killer. It will be available in the BigBoss repository which is added to your iDevice by default at the time of jailbreaking it. Once you find the tweak, click on it.
# When the page loads, click on Install button on the top right side of the page, and wait for it to conquer the server, and download and install the tweak for you.
# When done, click on the Restart Springboard option available on the black screen on your iDevice.
In case you couldn’t follow the tutorial, you can watch the video tutorial below.
That’s it. Wait for your iDevice to respring and boom! You will no longer see the software update notification in your Settings app. Let us know your views via the comments section below. For more, keep subscribed!
