OnePlus has just announced its latest software update for its 2021 flagship 9 and 9 Pro smartphones. It is based on Android 12, just like the last; however, it is apparent from the off that it fixes a lot of problems resulting from the initial upgrade to this latest OS version. It also enhances some signature features of the brand, Canvas AOD included.

OnePlus has announced a software update for its (technically) latest international flagship phones, the 9 and 9 Pro. It is rated to add the OEM's latest features developed for OxygenOS 12 (OOS 12); however, it seems mostly concerned with fixing the issues imparted from the move away from the older 11 version.

This new C.44 update - as opposed to its C.20 successor - is patently still in the process of fixing all the bugs left in the upgrade to OOS 12. According to its protracted changelog, they include addressing the latency in opening the native camera app; UI elements such as the charging animation; scrolling speeds and systemic-wide battery consumption.

Nevertheless, OnePlus asserts that its latest take on OOS 12 for the 9 and 9 Pro should add some of its latest features. They include a new 3-step stage for the phones' dark mode; a more one-stop approach to earphone controls; Work Life Balance 2.0 and a more detailed Canvas AOD mode.

Despite this, the brand has conceded that some of these new features might only be available to EU-specific units, even though OOS 12 C.44 for the 9 series has been issued for all of its applicable regions (India, the EU and North America).

In addition, OnePlus has announced that this will be an incremental roll-out, meaning it may not see all of its applicable units immediately on its release.
