I like older iOS releases (please don't ask why!)
I bought an iPod touch that I saw had iOS 7 on it on eBay, and sure enough, it had 7.0.4. I was happy, except that I noticed that iOS 8.4.1 had already downloaded and was ready to install. I do not want to update this device to that, even though 8.4.1 is not the latest either. I want 7.0.4, and I want that red notification circle off of my Settings icon, and off of the General icon in Settings, and the Software Update icon. I have also noticed that the update bugs me to install sometimes, and I have just had enough! When I go into Settings/General/Usage though, I find nothing mentioning iOS 8.4.1 in there, even after digging the whole section. I do not want to restore from a backup. Please tell me if there is any way to just delete the update and, if possible, prevent more from downloading? Also, please do not tell me to jailbreak it, as that is not anything I want. I do have iTunes on my PC, but I do not want to do a backup. Please help, ASAP!
