Assuming you plot in a for loop and the changing variable is x, below code will update the title of the plot to be equal to x
for i = 1:length(x)

Use h=text(. . .) to create the text object and then update the handle as needed.
Here's a demo
axh = axes();
h = text(.5, .5, ''); % initialize as empty
for i = 1:15
h.String = i;
You may want to format your numeric input using
h.String = sprintf(. . .);
