Additionally, the company’s own migration app, Switch has also been updated to a new version. The new Switch app will now transfer the data from an older device to your own device instantly. The updated app makes the data transfer need a seamless experience as it doesn’t require any setup procedure and you can instantly transfer things between the devices.

Furthermore, the new OxygenOS Open Beta update also brings February Month’s Security Patch to the devices.

And of course, the update fixes all the general bugs and minor errors from the device.
