OnePlus has announced that its early-2022 flagship smartphone, the 10 Pro, can now be updated to the latest software from the OEM. OxygenOS 13 (or OOS) is based on the corresponding, equally new, version of Android, and as such packs a new UI design, always-on displays and performance-focused features. However, it is only available to certain users in this initial phase of its roll-out.

OnePlus has announced that OOS 13 for its 10 Pro flagship is finally here. By any name, its changelog overlaps heavily with that of a certain other customized skin for Android 13 from the smartphone brand's parent company OPPO.

As such, OOS 13 now officially upgrades to the new Aquatic Aquamorphic Design for its UI. 10 Pro users may be delighted to see other features, particulary the active Bitmoji always-on display (AOD); the Auto Pixelate feature for screenshots; the new Dynamic Computing Engine rated to optimize system speed and stability; the Meeting Assistant that automatically redirects resources to suit apps such as Zoom, and the latest HyperBoost GPA 4.0 graphics feature for gaming.

OnePlus also backs this version of OOS to smooth out or improve existing features such as Private Safe, Insight AOD and Canvas AOD on the 10 Pro. Then again, despite the fact that it describes this build as the stable upgrade, it is only available to users who had had the latest Open Beta on their second-gen Hasselblad-branded device prior to this.

It is available to Open Beta program members located in North America, Europe or India as the NE2215_11.C.19, NE2213_11.C.19 and NE2211_11.C.19 builds respectively. In addition, despite billing this upgrade as definitive and official, OnePlus still welcomes bug reports via its official community website.
