Go to General. 3. Tap Software Update. 4. Tap Automatic Updates. 5. Disable Download iOS Updates and Install iOS Updates. 8.

Get Rid of Old Text Messages Tons of old text messages might be one reason why your iPhone or iPad is slower than before. Fortunately, there's an easy way to get rid of them.
