How to Update Carrier Settings in iOS 13 on iPhone and Cellular iPad

Carrier settings updates on your iPhone and iPad are a way by which your mobile network company introduces updates and fixes to improve cellular network connectivity or boost the performance.

Apart from that the updates also add new features like Voice over LTE (VoLTE) or Wi-Fi Calling. They also bring improvements to messaging, personal hotspot, mobile data, voicemail, and more.

Usually, when available, you see a pop-up for carrier settings update on your iDevice home screen after restart. In case you do not, you’ll have to manually check and install the carrier settings on your iPad and iPhone or force update it. To do this, follow the steps below.

  • If the carrier has released a mandatory update, you will see OK instead of Update
  • When you insert a new or different SIM card into your iPhone or cellular iPad, you have to download the latest carrier settings. Usually, you automatically see a pop-up, but if you don’t, follow the above steps
