The updates are available via both routes: you can get them via OTA route, or you can also get them by flashing their individual factory images from the links shared below. But OTA route is the best route, and if you’ve not received the security update notification yet then I’ll advise you to check for it manually by navigating to Settings>System>Advanced>System update.
