Answer:

It is possible to manually update your Carrier Settings, but the prompt will only be available if there is an update. This is often necessary after inserting a new SIM card into an iPhone or iPad.

To get started, first launch the Settings app on your iOS device and go to General > About. An update prompt will appear if you are connected to the internet and a Carrier Settings update is available.
