MacRumors reports that the update is only for certain handsets:

The update is only available for some models of the iPhone 5s and 5c sold in China and some European/Asia Pacific iPhone models compatible with China’s networks (those that are identified as iPhone 5,4 and 6,2): 

iPhone 5s 
A1457 (UK/Europe)

A1530 (Asia Pacific) 

iPhone 5c

Just for funsies, we tried to due an OTA update on our iPhone 5s, and received an “Unable to Check for Update” error. So… There’s that.
