OnePlus says that this will be a staged rollout which means that a limited number of users will receive the update initially with a broader rollout in the coming days. The company takes this approach to ensure that early bugs are reported, if any, so that it can pause the rollout to fix them until its ready. OnePlus has mentioned that forcing the OTA update by changing the region using VPNs won’t work since it isn’t region-based but randomly pushed.
