    You can easily upgrade your phone with OTA Updates. 

    You simply need to Go to Settings > About phone > System updates.

    Check for updates >> Install.

    Make sure you have at least 40 % battery, to prevent your phone from bricking.


    For unofficial upgrades, you need to root by unlocking its bootloader, install a recovery and flash a supporting zip along with gaps. XDA Developers is really a helpful site for the process, support, and Custom ROMs.
