These updates should be applied immediately. The process is no different from any other update. "Software Update" can be reached by clicking on the apple in the upper left of the screen on OS X, or through the App Store's Updates tab. This major Security Update will require a reboot of the system. The iOS updates can be applied as you normally would as well, either through iTunes, or via your WiFi connection.
