The OnePlus 9 series is next in line to receive its Android 13 update after the 10 Pro had its turn a couple of months earlier. The updates are pretty much the same, with the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro gaining the new Aquamorphic design for enhanced visual support and theme colors. This new design also ushers in a new set of natural and vivid animations that feel more fluid on your phone.

The OnePlus 9 series has also gained a new type of Always-On display to show live information regarding your music, ride-hailing, and food deliveries. On the security side, OxygenOS 13 brings in the Advanced Encryption Standard for better security over your phone's files.

With the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro gaining OxygenOS 13 here in November, we're still waiting on the 10T to receive its turn for a stable release. During its launch, OnePlus stated the device would be upgraded to Android 13 later this year, and it has gone through a closed beta test in India already. Hopefully, we're in for an update in the next month or so.
