iOS never had this annoying update system as there is now. In iOS 12, there is even an alert shown every time you unlock your iPhone on beta firmware. In order to minimize “Software Update”popups and alerts on your iPhone, you can follow the tutorial.

There are 2 Steps which will allow you to disable automatic software updates:
