A California man is suing Apple CEO Tim Cook in a complaint related to the over-the-air iOS update feature designed to make it easier for iOS device owners to keep their phone or tablet up to date with the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system.

The suit, titled "Mark David Menacher vs. Tim Cook" by the San Diego County branch of California's Superior Court, seeks a method to remove automatically downloaded iOS update files — specifically the new iOS 7 binary — and $50 in remuneration, reports CNET.

The automatic update system has been active since the release of iOS 6, but many users are holding off  upgrading to iOS 7. But that means the automatically-downloaded installation file, which weighs in at more than one gigabyte and cannot be removed by the user, may decrease a device's available memory by up to 15% with no way to recover the storage space.
