The highlights of OxygenOS 12, other than the rebase to Android 12, are a few new quality of life features and improvements, such as the always-accessible Shelf from the notifications bar. Since this is the stable release, we expect this to roll out to all users over the coming week, unless any major bugs are spotted. You can wait for your device to get picked up on the staged rollout, or you can sideload the update using the download links provided below. The next major update for the OnePlus 9 series will ship the unified operating system that combines the best of both OxygenOS and ColorOS, and that operating system will also ship on the next OnePlus flagship.

 

Users have already received the OTA and have installed it, and it looks similar to the Android 12 developer preview that we’ve already seen before. OnePlus has yet to officially announce the update on its forums, but we expect the company to soon.

The complete changelog is below.
