  1. At the time when the world is trying to work from home and the internet infrastructure is creaking at the seems. Even Netflix/Amazon Prime/Disney+ are cutting their bitrates. THAT is the time Apple decides to do a non essential update.

    Security updates I am more than happy with but an update that could wait, or even be staggered over a few days. Really?

    1. At a time when people need more features on iOS apps, there is never a bad time to complain to the world that Apple should not be issuing updates, because it just shows that your opinions belong in the john. They belong there because I am the master of pisstakes and wildly complaining about nothing is my job, NOT yours. So please, flush yourself, John.
