If she first connects to a WiFi network, she should be able to then go to SETTINGS>GENERAL>SOFTWARE UPDATE and update the OS. Here is the complete "How to update your iPhone..." from Apple.

Did she connect it to iTunes? Also, iOS usually notifies you when there is an update available.

Here's a helpful article:
