    I have an iPhone 5S running 10.3.3 with notifications that an update is available for about a year. I have not said yes to the download so the 11.x.x will not install. The phone is used occasionally with a prepaid SIM. Apps have been updated but not the iOS.

    At some point, you started the download and input your pin/password to confirm the download.

    The SE has never retailed for $800+. The version of the SE you have mentioned retails for $349 unlocked from Apple.

    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.

    At that point, the update payload has already been downloaded. That occurs in the background when the device is connected to a wi-fi network, and a power source during a charging cycle.

    Apple's strict version control is nothing new. What has changed, for the worse, is the sneaky way they have designed the update prompts that makes it very easy to trick people into unintentionally updating.

    The initial dialog that pops up, giving the option to "Install Now/Install Later/Details" isn't objectionable on its own.

    However, the following screen with the passcode entry keypad, requires greater attention not to perform an unintentional update. Most users are probably used to rote muscle memory entry of their code when prompted. But in this case, it results in authorization to perform the update. To decline the update requires tapping on the small "Remind Me Later" text at the bottom of the screen, like the fine print on a contract.

    This screen is displayed even if the user chooses "Later" in the dialog.

    It is poor UI to present the user with a screen clearly biased toward affirmation, right after they have chosen to decline or deny an action.

    Everything surrounding the process, from the design of the screens to the language, is to cajole the user into performing an update, even if not requested or desired.

    And for users who do pay attention, and have valid reasons to decline these updates and delete them from storage, they will continue to be downloaded in the background again, and pestered again, unless one is willing to block one or two specific Apple update servers.

    That said, going from 11.1 to 11.2 isn't a big deal. iOS point releases are usually improved over earlier versions, and the battery throttling was implemented in iOS 10, so that ship has already sailed.

    But it is smart to be circumspect about jumping on each new major release before letting others play the guinea pigs.

    Nothing wrong with keeping the older iOS version, you aren't forced to make an update currently.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    Sarcasm is a fine art...

    It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame

    Apple seems to be sharing more location information with advertisers. If you have an app for a business, you may receive sales information when you are nearby. You may save some battery use by turning off location services for many apps.
