The latest Android 11 update is based on OnePlus’s proprietary OxygenOS 11. It brings in lots of new features and improvements. The update is being rolled out via OTA to limited users and is 2009MB in size. You can search for the Android 11 update by going to Settings > System > System Updates.
As per the system changelog, the latest update is a significant jump from the previous Android version to the current one. OxygenOS 11 offers a fresh UI design with various optimisations. It introduces a new Insight Clock face for Ambient Display and a Dark Mode Quick Settings shortcut. There is also a new shelf design with an updated animations effect for the weather widget.
OxygenOS 11 also updates the camera UI and optimises some functions for a more convenient operation. The latest software version packs a host of improvements to Game Space including a quick reply feature in a small window for Instagram, WhatsApp, and Telegram.
OnePlus cautions that the upgrade process might take a little longer since it is a big update with multiple new features. The brand also added that downloading the update build with VPN won’t work as the rollout is pushed out to random users and to a limited number of devices.
