To grab iOS 13 now you have to search for it in the Settings app. Apple will ping you about the update only in the upcoming days, after the initial update wave is completed. This is done in order to avoid server overload. So, open Settings and browse for General -> Software Update. Allow your iPhone to search for the new version and the iOS 13 Software Update screen will be displayed on your screen.
