There was an issue with the home button in my iPhone which stopped responding altogether. While I was looking for iPhone 6 parts online in order to get the home button assembly, I came across this pop-up on my phone.
Carrier Settings Update
New settings are available. Would you like to update them now?
Carrier settings updates are small files that can include updates from Apple and your carrier to carrier-related settings, such as network, calling, cellular data, messaging, personal hotspot, and voicemail settings. You may receive notifications from time to time to install new carrier-settings updates.
So what the above statement means is that your iPhone would like to familiarize itself with all the information and setting of your service provider.Let’s say I am using Vodafone as my service provider and they have just upgraded to a new system. They want to convey this information to your phone. So, they push out the update in the form of a small settings file for all the users.
Once you get the pop-up, just click on the update button and that’s all. The new setting will be updated.
You can also check for the new setting and update it manually.Tap on Settings > General > About. A prompt will appear if a new update is available. You can also check the version of the carrier settings on your device which will be mentioned next to “Carrier”.
