When you see a red numerical notification badge in the top right corner of the Settings app, it means there's are new software updates.
Launch the Settings app and tap on General.
Tap on Software Update.
Tap on Install Now. (If you have jailbroken your iPhone, OTA updates may not be possible without downloading and installing 3rd party software)
Agree to the terms (who actually reads these things anyway).
iPhone will then communicate to Apple to ensure the packets are approved and ready to go.
Now sit back and grab a sandwich as your iPhone updates and installs!
