Personally, I think updates are terrible. Those updates are optimized for newest model and not necessarily provide fixes to your particular device. In this post, I’m gonna share 4 places that u might wanna check to turn off those horrible updates for Sony Xperia XA1.
1. Turn off updates from Software update
Settings => About Phone => Software Updates => 3 dots on the top right corner
Allow automatic updates option to
Do not update automatically
2. Turn off updates from Xperia updates
What’s New => Settings => Turn off Automatic updates
You need to turn on Developer mode first by going to
About Phone => tap
Build number 7 times
In the developer options, you will want to turn off
Automatic system update as shown in the screenshot
Bonus: Disable Google Play Store
Note: I really dislike about these auto-updates and unfortunately, if you enable google play store, goolge will always install those updates for you regardless whether you like it or not. The only way to stop google from updating is disabling Google play store and uninstall Google Play Service back to factory default. Check out how to disable Google updates on android devices here.
Hope this post is somewhat useful 😉
