Typically updating (when using official update files) will not wipe your phone. In some rare cases, updating can cause some incompatibility with some setting or app you have installed and cause unexpected problems that lead to the need to do a factory reset.
General rule of thumb regarding updates: apply the update assuming you won't lose any of your data, but be prepared in the event that you do.
