Even though Sony Mobile has already started rolling out the lollipop update to the above mentioned devices, it may take few days or even few weeks for the update to be delivered on your smartphone. It all depends upon your geographical location as well as your mobile phone carrier. Some times the update notification may not show up timely. So it is better to check it manually.
