You need to connect your phone to the computer, open itunes, once you see your phone on itunes, you navigate around. Any apps that you have bought/downloaded...they still be there for you. If not you can re-download at no charge.

An update only updates your software, it does not delete or change anything else. All of your contacts, apps, texts, etc will be completely untouched. As a general rule, it's good to back up your phone before an update in case there are any issues. But those are rare, no need to be concerned.
