Previously, some camera enhancements were also bundled along with the August update. However, this update seems totally incremental in nature and does not bring anything new apart from the September patch.

Note that the update is being pushed via OTA and will take some time in hitting all the devices. But, you can manually check for the update by heading to Settings>>About Phone>>System Updates>>Online Update.

Happy Installing!
