Android 12 comes to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro


If you’re a proud owner of the OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro and have been clamoring to get your hands on the Android 12 update, the day has finally arrived. Initially spotted by XDA Developers, the stable version OxygenOS 12 updated based on Android 12 is now rolling out.

Along with all of the new features that are included with what Google has baked into Android 12, there’s a lot going on here from the OnePlus front. There are changes across the board, including a new customizable Dark Mode, new and improved options for the Shelf, and enhancements to things like the Gallery and Canvas AOD.

With OxygenOS 12, OnePlus is also bringing its Work-Life Balance feature to the masses, moving it out of beta and into the forefront. The update carries a build number of LE2115_11.C.36 for the OnePlus 9 and LE2125_11.C.36​ for the OnePlus 9 Pro.
