iOS 6 is finally out for public download and you can get in one of two ways. The first is plugging in your iOS device to your computer and checking iTunes for an update.
Either that, you can go into the settings menu on your iPhone or iPad and navigate to General > Software Update. The update shouldn't wipe out your previously stored data but its always good practice to back your device up just in case.
iOS 6 is currently rolling out so it might not be available to
everyone right this minute. And since everyone's downloading it right now, you might just experience a lag to it since everyone's hammering Apple's servers now.
