Admins can delay iOS updates for up to 90 days from when the update is released by Apple using a configuration profile.
To delay an iOS update:
- Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add.
- Select Apple > iOS and configure Restrictions settings.
- Select Delay Updates (Days) from the OS Updates Restrictions subsection.
- Restrict Delay Updates and specify the number of days to delay the software update. Number of days range from 1 to 90. The number of days dictate the length of time after the release of the software update and not after the time of installation of the profile
