OnePlus Nord is receiving Android 11-based OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 update, the company has announced through a forum post. The update brings March 2021 Android security patch to the phone and fixes several issues. The company says that the incremental, over-the-air (OTA) update is being rolled out to OnePlus Nord users in India, Europe, and other global markets. OnePlus previously paused the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update on OnePlus Nord because some users started facing app crashes and other issues. OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 was released as a hotfix to address those issues. The newest OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 fixes further problems that weren't resolved by OxygenOS 184.108.40.206.
The OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 update was rolled out because the OnePlus Nord Android 11 OS update released earlier this month was paused after users complained about app crashes, notification issues, and battery drain issues after updating their phones. The OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 itself was the hotfix for the first Android 11 update for OnePlus Nord, and it had the same changelog as the original one.
The first Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update for OnePlus Nord and its hotfix OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 brought system improvements, ambient display tweaks, improved Dark Mode, shelf, and gallery. The handset also got new UI and optimisations to third party app stability. It also brought a shortcut key in quick settings for enabling Dark Mode, an auto turn-on feature with a customisable time range, and a weather widget with improved animations.
The OnePlus Nord OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 update also addresses some issues with the Calculator app that were causing the results and the button sizes to display abnormally. The update carries OxygenOS 188.8.131.52.AC01DA build number in India, while its European build is arriving as OxygenOS 184.108.40.206.AC01BA and the global release is coming as OxygenOS 220.127.116.11.AC01AA.
Just like OnePlus' previous updates, the latest one for the OnePlus Nord smartphone will initially reach a few users. It will be rolled out to a wider base of users after OnePlus makes sure there are no critical bugs in the update. If you haven't received a notification to update your phone, you can check by heading to Settings > System > System updates.
