What is the procedure for downloading 2.3 update?
There's no real procedure. When it becomes available, the car will download it over cellular without your intervention, and will prompt you when readyb to install.

In Europe VW is saying that the owner will need to have registered through the We Connect app, so I presume, when the time comes, the same will be true in the US via Car Net. But from everything I've seen, the phone nor the app play any active role in the update.

In Europe you’ll get an email on the address you use with the WeConnectID app. Here you need to actively approve the update. Some weeks later the car will actually download the update over 4G (no data package needed for that, it has its own internal network for that). It’s some weeks, because the roll out will be done in waves.

The approval is needed because part 1 will disable front assist features and travel assist, etc during the download (this will will trigger some warning lights as if those modules have failed)
Once the download is ready, you’ll get a message and the option to install the update once the car is parked and turned off.
Installation of the first part takes 70 minutes, and you can’t use the car during the update.

after the first part is installed, the car will begin downloading the second part. Downloading this part has no impact on any of the cars systems.
This part is an upgrade for the infotainment, is much larger, will take longer to download and longer to install (170 minutes) again, only installs after you tell the car to install it, and only installs when the car is parked and turned off. Again you cannot drive the car during this 170 minute window.

after this installation the car will be on 2.3 with infotainment version 910.
