Default What to do after Update

Ok, the Nexus 5 is my first android. And just as I learnt pretty much everything an intermediate user needed to kno (rooting, launchers, clocking, ROMs, kernels, that stuff), there comes another problem. 4.4.3. I've been hearing rumours about the new KitKat version, and it scares me! Coming from iPhone it was pretty simple, click update. What should I expect from android? Is it the same process of "New update, update now?" Click yes and its done? Or is it more complicated then that?

Side note: I'm rooted with custom ROMs and kernels, so is it like an iPhone jailbreak, will it f**k up my phone if I straight up update or do I have to wipe beforehand?

Sorry that's its such a nooby question, I just want to have knowledge of what to expect.

Thanks for putting up with me! ;D

If you're running a custom ROM you get updates from the developer, not Google. If you were running stock, you just go to settings\about phone\system updates.

Your ROM should update to 4.4.3 within a couple weeks, so you can be patient or go back to stock.
