A while back iPhone users saw a 16.1 carrier update from Bell on their iPhones and you guys asked us what was new.

@iPhoneinCanada Looks like a new Carrier update came out on my 5S with Virgin Mobile. Bell 16.1

We reached out to Bell for clarification and they told us the following via email:
This is an Apple update. They’ve listed what’s included here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1736
In other words, this update is related to iOS 7.1.1 and that’s all we were told. So if you’ve been losing sleep at night over this carrier update, now you know.
