Half a month after OnePlus announced that it’s becoming an Oppo sub-brand, it has revealed that it’s also merging its OxygenOS with its new parent company’s ColorOS. The two brands have come to the decision to “best leverage [their] shared resources” and to standardize the software experience across their portfolio. But what does OnePlus mean exactly when it said that they’re “working on integrating the codebase of OxygenOS and ColorOS?” It said you may not even notice a difference, because the changes are happening behind the scenes.
OxygenOS will still be the operating system for OnePlus devices released globally. As 9to5Google notes, OnePlus phones released in China already run ColorOS, and that will likely remain the case — it’s just that the operating systems will now shade a codebase. All new devices the sub-brand will release will run the new OxygenOS, while current devices that are still receiving updates will get the new platform via an over-the-air update.
Speaking of updates, OnePlus is promising better and longer Android update support, which now rivals Samsung’s, with the change. The OnePlus 8 series and the brand’s newer flagships will receive three major Android updates and four years of security updates going forward. Meanwhile, the first Nord and any newer Nord and Nord CE devices will receive two major Android and three years of security updates. Finally, the affordable Nord N series phones starting from the N10 and the N100 will get one major Android update and three years of security updates. Unfortunately, you can continue expecting two major Android and three years of security updates if you have a flagship older than the OnePlus 8.
When the merge was announced, the companies said OnePlus will remain independently operated. Since the move was meant to pool their resources and to better streamline their operations, though, linking their operating systems more closely doesn’t come as surprise.
Chatelaine Is Now Available On Apple News+ – Chatelaine
Current and back issues of Chatelaine and all SJC Media titles are available on this premium, all-you-can-read app
If you love magazines, you should get to know Apple News+. Think of it as a digital journalism buffet, an all-access pass to all your favourite magazine and newspaper titles for a subscription of $12.99 a month for the whole family.
What is Apple News+?
If you have an Apple device, you’re likely familiar with Apple News, a news aggregator app designed for the Apple ecosystem, accessible on iPhone, iPad or Mac. While it offers many articles for free—particularly breaking, trending and local news—Apple News also carries paywalled content that requires an Apple News+ subscription to access. Remember Texture? Apple acquired it in 2018 and evolved it into News+, giving readers access to an unprecedented volume of magazine issues, including back issues from 2018 on. Dubbed the “Netflix of magazines,” Apple News+ offers unlimited access to more than 300 magazines, newspapers and publications for a subscription fee of $12.99 per month after a free one-month trial. The subscription can be shared among a family of up to six people with the Family Sharing feature.
What are the benefits of reading Chatelaine on Apple News+?
Apple News+ reflects the ongoing evolution of digital magazines and the enduring value of consuming content in the packaged issue format, created to provide an immersive, premium-content experience. The Apple News+ platform makes a strong case for consuming magazine issues digitally, with proprietary formatting and ease-of-use features like a simple, ubiquitous table of contents that takes you right to a story, the ability to share and save individual stories, and thumb-scrolling design—no zooming necessary (though font settings are provided if you need it). Titles can also be downloaded to read offline—perfect for disconnected plane rides or mobile data savers. Issues usually drop on Apple News+ first (before print subscribers and newsstand) and sometimes include exclusive “live covers,” where video, animations and other interactive elements level up the reading experience.
How can I find Chatelaine on Apple News+?
Open the Apple News app on your Apple device. Hit the search tool, search for Chatelaine and then hit the plus sign on the right to add it to your library. A pop-up will let you opt in to notifications so you’ll be in the know when new stories or issues are published.
To access the landing page for Chatelaine, go to the Following tab at the bottom and navigate to your title. There you’ll see the latest news and stories from the brand, the past few issues as well as the topics we cover. You can also activate Family Sharing via the Following tab.
Continue to add other titles to your News+ library via the search or Following screens; all titles you’ve selected will automatically download when a new issue is ready. Hit the three dots at the bottom of the cover image to download the issue or browse back issues. Happy reading!

PS5 Firmware Update Will Improve Create Mode Functionality – Push Square
This PlayStation 5 firmware update that’s currently in beta testing sure has a lot of enhancements to look forward to. As well as allowing us to upgrade SSD storage, making improvements to the operating system, and displaying Trophy lists the way God intended, PS5’s Create functionality is set to receive some nice quality of life updates too.
The firmware’s extensive patch notes have been typed out in full, and they list some relatively small but notable improvements to Create mode. Firstly, when you take screenshots, you’ll be able to disable the on-screen confirmation notification that appears in the top right. This will stop it from appearing in later captures if you’re taking multiple at once.
When you’re recording a video, an on-screen timer remains at the bottom of the screen. With this update, the timer will disappear after three seconds and will reappear when needed, which is nice. If you want to save recent gameplay, Sony is adding more video length options. Next up, when you’re editing screenshots before sharing them, the number of fonts for adding text has been expanded.
Finally, the update will include more options for enabling or disabling certain audio from video clips or when broadcasting. You’ll be able to toggle your personal mic audio and party audio on or off, depending on what you want.
Again, nothing monumental here, but certainly some nice improvements for when you’re creating and sharing screens and videos. Will you be making use of these new improvements? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
