A new OxygenOS 12 update is ready. OnePlus really never settles as it always works on new phones and software updates. The latest is for the OnePlus 9 series that launched last year and was recently followed by the OnePlus 10 Pro. Specifically, OxygenOS 12 C.44 update is available for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. The last update for the duo was released over a month ago. The two phones are considered current models so it’s only right the Chinese OEM rolls out upgrades for them.
If you may remember, the OxygenOS 12 Open Beta 1 for OnePlus 9 only started rolling out in October. The latest one delivers a number of fixes but only for some regions.
If you own a OnePlus 9 in India, wait for this update: LE2111_11_C.44. North America will get LE2115_11_C.44 while those in Europe will receive LE2113_11_C.44. The OnePlus Pro will get LE2121_11_C.44, LE2125_11_C.44, and LE2123_11_C.44 in India, North America, and Europe, respectively.

Android Security Patch has been upgraded to 2022.01 already. That scrolling lag issue in Notification Bar and abnormal display in some game scenarios have been fixed.
