How to turn off auto update in Lollipop 5.1.1

Recently, I made an attempt to update my mobile phone to Lollipop 5.1.1 which eventually a successful one. At first, everything runs smoothly but I noticed that each time I open my WiFi an automatic update keeps on running which is somehow I don’t intend to get these apps updated. The reason is that it slows down my mobile and it will easily run out of memory space to my mobile which is not expandable.

So then I attempted to go over to my mobile to turn-off the automatic update. I knew that my settings in Google play is already set to “Do not auto update”. So I was clueless as to why it still run when I open my WiFi.

Thus I decided to go over more my mobile settings and truth enough it’s where it all started. The updates I made on the Operating System Lollipop 5.1.1 kick start the auto update of the system such as OneDrive etc.

See steps below which I did to turn off the auto update in Lollipop 5.1.1. This apply to Samsung S6 edge. Not sure with other mobile devices though.

1. Go to mobile settings then
2. Developer options – from here you click it and see options On/Off
3. so switch to Off

Additional to this:
1. Go to mobile settings then
2. About the device
3. Go to software update
4. from software update – turn off the Wi-Fi only which it turned on when the OS update I made.

So there, it’s easy as it sound but it's all about discovering things on your own thus really a goes a long way
