Updating cell towers att
One thing to note is that, according to the carriers, these updates are specific to Apple devices, namely the i Phone and cellular-connected i Pads.
Google and Microsoft also make carrier-related changes to their Android and Windows Phone devices, respectively, but they’re folded into a more general software or maintenance update.
In general, the answer is, yes, they are safe to download.The updates can include changes from Apple or any of its official carrier partners, like AT&T or Verizon, or it can be a combination of both.(A couple of the wireless carriers I asked basically said, "It’s an Apple thing — ask them.") When one is available, you may receive a push notification on your i Phone or i Pad, which you can download and install wirelessly.This can include adding support for upgrades made to a carrier’s network or the rollout of new functionality like voice-over-LTE, which promises to deliver better-sounding voice calls. For example, a carrier update was issued after a bug was found on the Verizon i Phone 5s that was causing the phone to use cellular data while connected to a Wi-Fi network.Another instance where a carrier settings update may occur is when you swap out SIM cards.
