Today, OnePlus announced a new software update for its latest flagships (outside of China), the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro launched last year. The new software is marked C.44 in all global markets.
This brings the January 2022 security patch level, which is welcome as we are still exist January. This could also be the longest changelog update we’ve seen from OnePlus. We won’t list everything here, but trust us – we’re committed to a ton of bug fixes and improvements.

In a post announcing the rollout, OnePlus said that “this new version addresses some outstanding issues,” which means not all people, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. The company also noted that some of the items in the changelog are only available for EU-region models, but didn’t specify which ones.
Regardless, you can expect improved battery life, a smoother fingerprint unlock process, better charging animations, less scrolling lag in the notification area, adding three adjustable levels for dark mode, and adding and fixing in Shelf many contents. The work-life balance feature is now available to all users, with automatic mode switching and custom app notification profiles. You’ll also get improvements to the camera, 5G connectivity, Canvas AOD functionality, and the Gallery app.
As always, the update’s over-the-air rollout will be incremental, covering only a small number of devices for now, with a wider rollout planned in a few days if no dire issues arise.
