OxygenOS for OnePlus Nord

The latest update is available in India, North America as well as Europe. And as usual, the update is rolling out in batches which means it can take time to reach all the OnePlus Nord users. You will receive an update notification on your phone when it’s available. But sometimes the Notification doesn’t work and in that case you can manually check for updates. Go to Settings > System > System Update and it will show the latest update.

Luckily, OnePlus allows users to install incremental OTA update through zip files. It means if you want to update your phone immediately, you can use the OTA zip file. You can download the OnePlus Nord OxygenOS OTA file from the Oxygen Updater app. And after downloading, head to System Update and select local upgrade. Before upgrading, always make sure to take a full backup and charge your phone to at least 50%.
