Turning off wifi until the update is approved won't work, either, as it is necessary for loading flight plans, viewing documents and updating other time sensitive flight data. Barring that, can anyone find the twit responsible and line him or her up against a wall?
So what I'm getting here is that there is no way to stop this insanity.
But don't worry, when you are ready, the download is usually fairly quick and painless.
To stop the nagging requests to install the update, do the following. Until the IT department can confirm that all necessary apps will function with the update, we can NOT install it.
However some users like to remain in control of what is happening on their devices, and may want to disable automatic app updates.
In this post we will show you how to prevent your i Phone or i Pad from automatically downloading app updates.
Apple, in their infinite stupidity, can't think of a reason to not update. Blocking the Apple server is not an option, as we use these on various wifi systems around the world.
For instance, I highly doubt i OS would check and update apps in the middle of the day when you’re at work with 20% of battery left.
These instructions apply whether you use an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch.
Slide the switch from the green "on" position, to the blank "off" position to stop the App Store from updating your apps for you.
With it turned off you'll need to launch the App Store to check for and download any updates.
