This week, the second beta of iOS 13.6 was released to developers and thanks for Jeremry Hortwiz on Twitter, we now know some details about some improvements to iPadOS and iOS in regard to how automatic OS updated are handled. You can now choose to allow automatic downloads and or installs without user conformation.
Automatic updates will only happen over WiFi and users will now be able to disable automatic downloads, to save them taking up device space.
I don’t remember seeing this before in iOS/iPadOS – a way to let your device automatically download and/or install updates, without necessarily saying yes or no to both. Nice quality of life improvement. Found in iPadOS 13.6 beta 2. pic.twitter.com/qdEE1vKneP
