When you receive a single message every day, you are likely to get pissed off with that nasty pop-up. Of late, I have gone through this nightmarish experience, wherein my iPhone constantly asks me for a software update.
Even after updating to the latest iOS version downloaded over-the-air; how irritating it is to get that message every morning! Not anymore. Follow this method to remove a software update download from your iPhone and iPad.

Step #1. Launch Settings app → Tap on General.
Step #2. Tap on Storage & iCloud Usage.
Step #3. Now tap on Manage Storage.

You will no longer receive that annoying message of software update every morning. Moreover, if you want to update software in the future, all you need to do is:
