Carrier settings update while traveling abroad

My daughter is traveling abroad and received a notification for “Carrier Settings Update”. Is this ok to do while in Europe? Is there any risk the phone will have issues after? She is using the AT&T International Data Plan.

We're here to give you more information on the carrier settings update notification that your daughter received, @jgoose67.


No, there aren't any risks associated with this. The update is designed to improve the service of the device on the carrier's network. The installation of the update can be delayed until she returns if you're concerned about it affecting her device. 


To check for available updates: 

  • On the device, navigate to Settings > General > About or tether to iTunes. 

For additional details, check out Apple's support article on how to update the carrier settings on your iPhone or iPad.
