You should not lose any data but as you know, with any device made by man, glitches can rarely occur. I strongly recommend that you import the pictures as per below. All else can be restored in the rare chance that something goes wrong. I would also recommend that your do the update through iTunes and not Over the Air, you will get a whole new file set instead of just the changes and it is more reliable, less prone to issues.
