    I got an update to AT&T carrier settings for my iPhone 6 when I plugged into iTunes (which I do once a day), so it must have gone out today. Is there a way to find out what it is for?

    I got it today as well but OTA. Not sure what it was for though.

    I just updated after seeing this thread. I have better service now at home and am also getting lte coverage. Not sure if that had anything to do with it or not since I keep lte off due to the limited availability in my area and check once a week or so. Didnt have lte last week.

    I did some checking around, there are reports on Mac forums that after the 18.1 update (AT&T) that iPhone 6/iPhone 6+ remain in LTE while making a call when it used to step down to 4G. So some of us may be seeing Voice over LTE, clearer calls, in our area! It also seems to be that the carrier update to 18.1 is so far just for iPhone 6 and 6+. Also, AT&T coverage maps are now showing HD voice enabled in many more markets.

    Here is the coverage map to see if you have HD voice now:

    Caveat: To use AT&T HD Voice, both caller and receiver need an AT&T HD Voice-capable phone!

    If you open the About section on your phone's Settings it will prompt you to install if there is something available.

    Has anyone seen their battery life take a plunge after this update? I have. my iPhone 6 was fully charged on Saturday and when I got to work yesterday, Monday, my battery was down to 50% and that was very little use Saturday and Sunday.

    I recharged the battery last night and it was down to 68% this morning. I found that "Settings" has used 57%, "Home& Lock Screen has used 18% and "Phone" has used 18%. I made several calls and received 1 call since I had charged the phone so I can believe the 18% on the Phone.

    I haven't gotten the carrier update on my 6 Plus nor my 6. Connecting to iTunes, even. I wonder if it's a regional thing.

    I just talked to AT&T tech support and I was told that the 18.1 carrier update is an audio fix between VoLTE devices and non VoLTE devices. When a VoLTE call connected with a non VoLTE call their was "garble".

    It's an audio bug fix. Apparently when a VoLTe call connected to a non VoLTE call their was distortion or "garble" as the rep called it.

    I've noticed pretty poor battery life on my 6 after the 18.1 carrier update... Had been pretty good prior after iOS update 8.1.2

    It seems that at least part of 18.1 fixed the problems iPhone 6 and 6 plus were having with AT&T Microcells.

    I received the update yesterday. But, I hardly ever make calls. I guess I should make just one to test this

    I checked the map for VoLTE, and I am on a boundary line - my home is not in the region supported, but my work is. So when I got to work, I watched as I made a call, and it stayed in LTE! It does not at home. The maps must be pretty accurate, as work/home are only about 5 miles apart for me.

    I can't say whether that began with 18.1 or prior, as I never looked at it before this update. But if you check the map and try it in a supported region, I bet your phone stays in LTE for calls now.
