Sony community website XperiaBlog has confirmed that the Xperia Z2(D6503) owners have begun getting the new Lollipop update (build number: 23.1.A.0.690) notifications on their devices in Nordics and Baltic regions.
If Sony Xperia Z2 owners are getting the update notifications, then select - "Yes, I'm in" option >> then, after downloading, select >> "Install now." The phone will restart automatically and the OS will be updated to the new version.
