The release of Android 14 to the rest of the Android ecosystem is slowly happening. Today, OnePlus is joining the party, with the flagship OnePlus 11 getting the update. The company posted the news on its forum.
The update is first launching in India, OnePlus’ biggest market, but there’s no reason for other markets to not get the update quickly. Phone manufacturers like to roll out these new Android updates slowly, and for now, the “stable”release is opt-in via the beta program.
Android 14 went through a lengthy eight-month beta testing period, but despite that, the OS still shipped with a crippling bug that locked some users out of their devices and caused them to lose data. It seems the bug was fixed in time for the partner rollout, though. While no one has really acknowledged it (the communication about this bug has been awful), there wasn’t a new round of complaints when Samsung shipped Android 14 at the end of October, so it seems like this version is safe. Still, it’s hard to say anyone should be rushing to update, given the serious problems Android 14 launched with.
