Send a message via MSN to syntheticvoid
I'm not sure if it's the same on iOS 10, but you should be able to go into Settings>General>Storage & iCloud Usage>Manage Storage
Then find the update, tap it, and delete it.

I just managed to drag a file from a folder to my iPhone in iTunes 12.7.

So, yes, it seems to work. Still not great due to the lack of back ups of everything from here onward, but itíll have to do. Until they kill that feature too

You can still backup new apps if you have an older version of iTunes perhaps on another PC. Yes, you have to download them again assuming you purchased them on you phone or iPad but is that an issue if you want a backup? I have bought several apps and games this week, on my iPad, and they automatically downloaded to my PC with an older iTunes. You can't do it with the latest iTunes but so what. I prefer the latest iTunes as I only ever use it to sync music to my iPhone and it is so much faster than previously especially if you backup your phone to the cloud.

As someone with borderline OCD, I cannot stand the annoying red icon that pops up over the Settings icon when Apple wants to remind you there's a new iOS update to download.
Aaaand, it happened today. Without going into the Software Update section of Settings or doing anything else to download the update, that red update icon appeared in the upper right corner of the Settings icon prompting me to install iOS 11. I am max annoyed.

This didn't seem to work the first time. I was able to find the update under Manage Storage and hit Delete Now, but I still see that infernal red icon above the Settings icon. I'll try again later. Anyone have any other tips?

UPDATE: Good news/bad news. After following syntheticvoid's advice and then restarting the phone, the blasted red icon disappeared over the Settings icon. Thanks, synth! The red notice remains within the Settings app itself, but I guess I'll have to live with that. Borderline OCD crisis avoided, for now.

happened to me today too on my iPad. I'll SV's advice as it's catching my eye and winking at me every time I look at my iPad.
