Shaw’s Freedom Mobile issued their first carrier update yesterday for iPhone users, as 31.1 was released for iPhone X and other models.
We’re told the update means users no longer need to set APNs manually. Also, under Cellular Data Options in Settings on your iPhone, you should now see two options: Enable LTE and Data Roaming. The carrier update should also bring network improvements for your device as well.
How to install this carrier update? On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > About and the carrier update pop up message should appear.
Freedom Mobile launched iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and more for $0 on contract two weeks ago, putting pressure on Rogers, Telus and Bell with its aggressive hardware subsidies. Click here to see all Band 4 and Band 66 LTE cities supported by Freedom.
Let us know if this Freedom Mobile 31.1 iPhone carrier update has changed anything with your day to day use on the network.
Thanks Cody, XJ
