Is it possible to disable Android OS updates?

You can manage Android OS update policy in Headwind MDM, in configuration details, parameter "System update".

Unfortunately Android doesn't allow to disable OS updates completely. The following options are available:

Default - do not change the OS update policy

Immediately - update OS (and reboot the device) immediately after the phone receives the on-the-air update, without user consent.

Scheduled - update OS without user consent at certain time (usually at night). This is the most appropriate option.

Postponed - request user consent for the update within 1 month after the device downloads the update; if the user consent is not received within a month, updates the device anyway. Not recommended because it depends on the user's action.

Note: OS update policy can only be applied if Headwind MDM launcher is installed as a device owner.
