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:


  1. Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add.
  2. Select Apple > iOS and configure Restrictions settings.
  3. Select Delay Updates (Days) from the OS Updates Restrictions subsection.
  4. 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
