Go to the Settings > System > Advanced > System Updates. You can run a check for the latest update. If the new software bearing the build number PPTS29.74-41-5-8 then download it by following the on-screen instructions. Using a Wi-Fi to download the update is recommended as it will save your carrier data charges. Keep in mind to have over 50% of the battery charge on your device. Installing a new update on the low battery is not recommended.
