Today OnePlus has announced the release of a new software update for its latest flagships (outside of China), the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro launched last year. The new software is labeled C.44 in all global markets.
This brings with it the January 2022 security patch level, which is welcome since we’re still in January. It’s also probably the update with the longest changelog we’ve ever seen from OnePlus. We won’t list everything here, but trust us – there are a ton of bug fixes and improvements promised. If you want to see the entire thing in all its glory, make sure you hit the Source link below.
In the post announcing the rollout, OnePlus says “this new release resolves a few of the pending issues”, which means not all of them, but it’s still definitely a step in the right direction. The company also notes that some of the items in the changelog only apply to models in the EU region, but fails to mention exactly which.
Anyway, you can expect improvements to battery life, a smoother fingerprint unlocking process, a better charging animation, less scrolling lag in the Notification area, the addition of three adjustable levels for Dark mode, and a lot of stuff added and fixed in Shelf. The Work Life Balance feature is now available to all users, with automatic mode switching and customized app notification profiles. You also get improvements to the camera, 5G connectivity, the Canvas AOD feature, and the Gallery app.
As always, the over-the-air rollout of the update will be incremental, reaching a small percentage of devices today, with a broader rollout planned in a few days if nothing goes horribly wrong.
