Considering the fact that the update is being pushed over-the-air, it might not reach all the devices at once. So, if you don’t like waiting for it arrive on your handset, head to Settings > About phone > Software update to check for the update manually.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that it’s essential for you to charge your handset before installing the update. And, if possible, try to back up your data before hitting the install button.
