OnePlus 9R picks up November 2021 security update

When OnePlus rolled out the November 2021 security update to the OnePlus 9 series last month, it left out the OnePlus 9R. But that’s finally changing as the company is rolling out a similar update to its 2020 affordable flagship.

As per user reports on OnePlus forums, the company has started rolling out OxygenOS to the OnePlus 9R. It’s a small update that weighs 372MB and packs November 2021 security patches and stability improvements.

OxygenOS update changelog:

  • System
    • Improved system stability and fixed known issues
    • Updated Android security patch to 2021.11

OxygenOS has already started hitting the OnePlus 9R units in India. If you own one, look out for an OTA notification in the coming days. To manually check for the update, navigate to Settings > System > System Update. If you don’t want to wait, we have provided direct links to incremental and full OTAs which you can use to manually install the update. If you’re on OxygenOS, pick the incremental package. If you’re running an older version, you’ll need to flash the full OTA. After downloading the package, transfer it to the root directly of your phone’s internal storage and flash it using the Local Upgrade method within the System Update menu.
