OnePlus 8 series, OnePlus 8T, and OnePlus 9R are getting a new bug-fixing update
OnePlus has released a bug-fixing update for a number of its phones, including the OnePlus 8 series, 8T, and 9R. This update is primarily intended to fix vulnerabilities introduced by the May 2022 security updates. However, general enhancements are incorporated as well. OxygenOS C.21 is the name of the update, and it will be available for all of these smartphones. It’s worth noting that the changelog for all four devices is the same (the OnePlus 8 series includes the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, of course).
So, what’s different now? With this upgrade, the overall system stability has improved. In addition, there are three fixes listed here. OnePlus appears to have resolved the issue that caused the screen to behave strangely after being locked. It also resolves an issue where gesture operations behaved strangely after enabling Quickstart. The camera is the subject of the last-mentioned fix. This update corrects an issue that caused the camera to crash in some situations when using Ultra Steady mode.
The upgrade is now being rolled out in India, but it will soon be expanded to other areas. It’s possible that it’s already begun to roll out elsewhere, so keep a lookout. This version doesn’t bring any significant changes, although fixes and optimizations are always welcome. The majority of these faults didn’t affect a large number of users because they only occurred in specific settings. Even so, the fewer bugs the better.
This update is being pushed out over the air (OTA), and it will be done in stages. This basically indicates that it will take some time to reach everyone. It’s possible that you’ll have to wait a while to acquire it. Once it’s available, your phone will notify you, but you can also check manually in Settings.
