While the update is currently rolling only to a small number of users, OnePlus expects to begin a broader rollout within the next few days. If you do not want to wait for the OTA update, you can grab the latest OxygenOS 10.5.6 update for your Nord using the third-party Oxygen Updater app from the Play Store.
