Update Carrier Settings?

Today I received a push notification saying I could update my carrier settings. Does anyone know what the update entails or where I can find that information? It is either carrier settings update or carrier services update.

  • 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.

We have 5 lines, 3 of which are iPhone 6. Only one of those phones is getting this notification multiple times a day. We are wary of updating if only one line is getting these notices. Advice?

Some iPhone models might not require the same update as others and may update at different times.
