iOS configuration files can be used for a variety of purposes, such as participating in the Apple Beta Software Program, making seamless Wi-Fi connections or changing settings. These files can be removed once they are no longer useful. Of course, if you're using a work iPhone the organization managing your iPhone may prevent the removal of iOS configuration files.
Back in the days of the original iPhone, Apple printed each device's serial number right on the back of the iPhone.

Checking for warranty coverage or scheduling a repair typically requires entering this information, as each iPhone has its own unique number.
Keeping the carrier settings file on your iPhone up to date ensures the best wireless performance on your carrier's cellular network. Typically, the carrier will push updates to subscribers' devices automatically. Then iOS will ask if you'd like to install these new carrier settings with a prompt.
