Default Help with Installing the Update while Rooted

Okay so the official update is out for all my friends and I want it too, but I'm rooted. Any help?
I know that I can unroot and then install the update, but if I unroot, do I lose all my apps? What happens to all my root apps? Do those disappear? Because once I install the update I plan on rooting right back so would all my current root apps have to be reset?

Can someone just give me a quick run-through of the easiest way to get this official update, whether it use unrooting or any other method available.

You'll lose root for sure but its no problem as you can just root it again afterwards. Your root apps won't disappear they just won't have that access till rooted again
