For the firmware OTA automatic updates, a notification will appear along your phone's status bar and notification panel. The process of activating the update is as simple as tapping on the said notification and the download will start.

Once the download is completed, you will receive another notification to install the update. You will need to choose "Install" to start the process. The device will reboot twice during the install process. DO NOT turn off your device until you see the home screen.

The OTA updates will take about a week to reach every user. If you haven't received the notification within that time period, you can check and initiate the update by going to Settings > System > System Updates.

As per usual, we highly suggest that your phone has at least 85% of battery life before initiating any updates. This is to avoid any possible complications if ever the phone loses power in the middle of the install process. We also highly suggest backing up any important files you have just to be safe.

Word about Android Pie updates for older ASUS ZenFone devices are yet to be confirmed.
