OnePlus rolls out January 2022 security patches to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro

OnePlus rolled out the first stable build of OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro back in December. But a few days after the rollout began, OnePlus pulled the update due to various issues. A couple of weeks later, OnePlus resumed the rollout with several bug fixes and improvements. Towards the end of last month, OnePlus rolled out a fresh OxygenOS 12 update to the devices with a few more optimizations and bug fixes. Now, the company is rolling out yet another update on the stable channel with the Android security patches for January 2022.
