What is in the "Carrier Settings Update"

I am getting a "Carrier Settings Update" notice on my AT&T iPhone SE.  I would like to determine what it does or is for before installing.  Under the General Settings my phone is currently showing AT&T 28.3 beside "Carrier".

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Carrier update 28.4 iPhone 7plus

Hello @RonCouturier,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us on the Community Forums! I can definitely understand how important knowing what the new updates bring to your device.

 

The latest software we are currently showing is 10.3.1, which released April 4th. You can find more information about the update and changes by visiting our Device Support page. Once there, choose your make and model device, and then select “Software updates” at the bottom.

 

The last carrier settings update we are showing was version 28.3, released March 27th. This included a fix relating to international roaming while using VOLTE.

 

I hope this information helps you! Please continue to keep an eye out for any updated software information on our Device Support page. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are eager to help!

Re: Carrier updates

It is required.  You can postpone 2 times only then it will force the update.

REAl or Scam

I received a text across my phone today indicating carrier update.  Is it real or scam?  It is an Apple IPhone.

Re: REAl or Scam

It's not a text message, it is the actual update, it just looks like a text...and no it is not a scam.

Re: Carrier update 28.4

Carrier updates do not change functions on iPhone.
