Carrier Update to 14.2 - Any details on it?

Hi folks!

So as the title says, my iPhone 5 automatically updated the carrier settings to AT&T 14.2 by I'm unable to find anything different. Any idea what this carrier update was about? Smiley Tongue

I just checked and noticed something not so good.

 

On June 24 I ran a speedtest on my iphone 5 (after 14.1 update) and noticed that my download speed was anywhere from 23.81 and 26.38 mpbs. Today, after several tests my download speed has slowed to between 5.06 and 8.98 mbps. What's up with that?

I just checked mine and it did take a speed hit but not at my home still as low as its always been around 9.80 but at my wifes work it limited to 43.73 instead of 50 which is still fast but killed the upload to 5.10 from 15.00 so it looks like it can't run wide open any more.

Although anything is possible.. I just did some snooping around tmobile's forums and it seems they too have received a carrier update to 14.2 but no details there either..

Re: Carrier Update to 14.2 - Any details on it?

Hey everyone, thanks for your posts about the Carrier Update for your iPhones. Check out Wireless Emergency Alerts Coming to iPhone 5, 4S which will explain the purpose of the update. It is possible that some customers will receive this udpate twice. If this happens to you, don't be alarmed, AT&T and Apple simply want to ensure an optimal device experience on our network. 

 

Thanks again!

from what I gather the T-mobile relates to the new lte markets that they are opening. Can't remember if the 5 hsowed this before but I noticed it now says LTE in the upper left corner of the phone just past the bar indicator.

Pretty sure it also nuked the 'hacked' carrier update that was out there that boosted speeds. Also, the filenames for the M-Cell logo file are different.

Still no release notes? 14.1 (that's ONE, not TWO) added the emergency/government alerts. Best I can tell for now on 14.2, there is a slight change to the M-Cell logo, tethering option now greyed out for plans without the tethering option (mine used to let me go into the settings even though I had no option on my plan for tethering - now it's greyed out), and possibly breaks the fan-released hacked carrier update that boosted speed (as people are now complaining of slower speeds). Is there some NSA/CIA/DEA/FBI/etc...code to track us in there as well? Is that why there's no notes and you guys are keeping mum about it? [only 2 more months and I get to cancel my AT&T and go to a real carrier that lets you actually use your data the way you want with no idiotic contract in the way!!!!]

The update that you're seeing is the same as last week's update.
