    How much longer until we can schedule update downloads?


    It's been asked again and again, and every time the discussion gets locked with no proper response.


    So many of us are still on slow connections, capped data, or have other data limitations, yet we still have no option to schedule a time for update downloads to take place when it is suitable for us, without incurring excess data charges or reducing our networks to a trickle.


    Recent updates have seen the ability to stop updates entirely for up to 7 days, and there has always been the ability to schedule when updates install, but the most important option seems to be getting overlooked! Is there a valid reason, because I can't think of one?

    :)
