How to Turn on Automatic Software Updates in iOS 12

by John_A

If you don’t want your iPhone or iPad to bug you about Apple’s frequent software updates but want your software to stay up to date, there’s a new option in iOS 12 to enable automatic software updates.

With this feature turned on, when a new version of iOS is released, your iPhone or iPad will be updated automatically

Open the Settings app,
Choose “General.”
Select “Software Update.”
Tap on “Automatic Updates.”
Toggle the option from off to on. Automatic updates are turned off by default, so the default behavior of software updates isn’t changing in iOS 12. Unless this is turned on, your iOS device will wait for you to manually tap the install button when an update is released, though it will continue to download new updates in the background.

To turn off automatic updates, follow the same steps, toggling the update from on to off.
