The update weights 152 MB in size and is rolled out-over-the-air. However, this is a stagged roll-out, which means it will only be rolled out to a limited number of users to make sure there are no bugs in the update. That said, a wider roll-out will commence soon and the update should reach all the units across the globe in a week or so. With that being said, if you can’t wait for the update notification to pop-up on your phone, you can check for it manually by heading over to the Settings > System updates menu.
