Just last week, OnePlus announced the release of the new update for OxygenOS 12 for its OnePlus 9 series. But it looks like the company is pulling out the release and suspending it in the meantime. The Chinese tech giant has also apparently issued a statement regarding the suspension of the rollout. According to the users, the new update is brimming with bugs.
“We are aware of the issues in the OxygenOS 12 update. Our software team is working to resolve them, this software update rollout is stopping for now. A fresh iteration will be released as soon as possible”.The company in their statement.
Many users reportedly complained that the update did not bring all the promised features. Whereas, others claim many of the features are not a part of the update. The OxygenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro rolled out for users earlier this week through an over-the-air (OTA) update. On the other hand, some are even questioning how it passed off as a ‘stable’ update in the first place.
OnePlus 9’s new OxygenOS 12 update stopped
To recall, the OnePlus 9 series are also the first smartphones to have upgraded from traditional OxygenOS to this new OPPO-flavoured operating system. However, the new operating system comes with complaints from users who experienced bugs and other issues. Issues like customisation options, network issues, or general build stability issues, so the company decided to pull it from the market.
Meanwhile, some are hinting that the majority of the issues are coming after switching from OxygenOS to ColorOS codebase. In turn, various settings are not transitioning properly after the new update. Moreover, the new OxygenOS comes after an announcement of deeper integration with the parent company, Oppo. The new OxygenOS 12 update comes as a revised and revamped custom skin based on Oppo’s ColorOS software.

On the other hand, other OEMs like Samsung are also struggling to provide a bug-free experience as seen with the One UI 4.0 update for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphones. But even after debugging and releasing the OxygenOS 12 — many OnePlus 9 owners will still be upset with the change in the phone’s software layer, which has become ColorOS.
