The update is available via Software Update on your iPhone or iPad or the next time you connect your iOS device with iTunes.

Note that iPhone 5 users will have to download an updater app first, which will then prompt them to update iOS. The updater will appear in General > Software Updates as usual.

Update: It seems Verizon iPhone 5 users will need to reboot after the iOS Updater app is installed, whereas we can confirm AT&T iPhone 5 users do not.
