Why did I get a network update request for my iPhone 5S today?
antoniogonzalez04

Today I got an alert asking if I wanted to accept a Verizon network update on my iPhone 5s.  Did anyone else get this alert?  What is this update and what does it fix?

  • Carrier settings updates are small files that are installed on iOS devices. The Carrier settings include updates to Access Point Names (APNs), MMS Settings, features such as tethering and default apps such as Stocks, Maps, and Weather. Having the most up to date Carrier Settings is recommended for the proper functionality of the device.
