OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro update changelog

The OxygenOS 11.2.8.8 update for the OnePlus 9 (Review) and the OnePlus 9 Pro (Review) was announced via a post on OnePlus' official community forum. While the update brings the usual —  fixes for known issues and improved stability — OnePlus has also added the OnePlus Store app to its flagship phones like it has for many of its other smartphones. Notably, the newly added app can also be uninstalled if the users wish to.

What's new is the addition of the Bitmoji AOD for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. The post mentions the new AOD — developed by Snapchat and Bitmoji — "will liven up the ambient display with your personal Bitmoji avatar." It also says that the avatar will keep updating itself throughout the day, based on activities and things happening around the user. To activate the Bitmoji AOD, head to Settings > Customization > Clock on ambient display > Bitmoji.

As is the case with all OnePlus updates, the OxygenOS 11.2.8.8 update will also be rolled out in an incremental manner. A broader rollout is expected to be conducted in the coming few days. The firmware version for OnePlus 9 in India, Europe, and North America is 11.2.8.8.LE25DA, 11.2.8.8.LE25BA, and 11.2.8.8.LE25AA, respectively. While the firmware version for OnePlus 9 Pro in India, Europe, and North America is 11.2.8.8.LE15DA, 11.2.8.8.LE15BA, and 11.2.8.8.LE15AA.

The update is bundled with the July 2021 Android security patch but the size of the update is not known yet. Users are advised to update their OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro smartphones while they are connected to a strong Wi-Fi and are put on charging. The update is expected to roll out automatically over-the-air, but users can also manually check for it by heading to Settings > System > System updates.
