As you’d expect, the upgrade is making the rounds in stages. If you’d like to check to see if it’s ready for your handset, open up Settings, then select the relevant option from the Software Update subheading. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a notification prompting you to install the update, though it may take a little longer to appear than manually scanning.
