OxygenOS 14 vs OxygenOS 13: What’s new?

OnePlus recently unveiled the newest version of its Android-based operating system, OxygenOS. 

You can expect OxygenOS 14 to arrive on supported OnePlus phones in the near future, but what’s new? Keep reading to learn all the major differences between OxygenOS 14 and last year’s OxygenOS 13 update. 

OxygenOS 14 is faster and smoother

OxygenOS 14 includes CPU-, ROM- and RAM-Vitalization. These three features improve performance speeds and offer an all-round smoother experience for the user. 

CPU-Vitalization uses arithmetic scheduling technology to balance performance with power efficiency. This should allow the system to remain smooth during high loads and extend battery life. 

ROM-Vitalization, meanwhile, uses memory acceleration technology to compress and defragment files to save storage space. This also improves the file read/write efficiency for faster and smoother performance. 

Finally, there’s RAM-Vitalization which is designed to intelligently allocate memory resources and background app management for faster app launching and smoother switching between apps.
