Things to consider before updating Android 12
Oppo also indicated a few things to consider before updating Android 12 devices:
- It is best to back up important data on the phone before updating to avoid data loss caused by incompatibility or other unexpected circumstances.
- After updating to the latest version, the operating system will perform several actions to optimize your device automatically. This can cause your device to overheat, lag, and drain the battery quickly. We recommend that you turn off the screen and charge your device for an entire night after a successful update. Or keep using the device and it will be normal in a few days.
- Some third party apps are not compatible with Android 12. So these apps may not be available to update or you may experience technical issues including lag and crashes on your device.
