The firmware update comes in the form of OTA and if it has hit you device, you can already update by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Updates. Tap on Check For Software Updates. Download the new firmware and then install it. However, note that your phone status must not be custom or modified as it will not receive the update. If it is, you need to flash a stock firmware.
