In this article, we will be sharing with you all how to Fix Missing AOD on OnePlus 7 series after Android 11 OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 Update.
No one can beat OnePlus when it comes to timely updates. But what is the case with its 7 series? Users have been waiting from the November of last year and finally, now the OEM decided to release the OnePlus Oxygen 11 Open Beta 1 Update based on Android 11.
The update has brought along some exclusive Android 11 features like Renovated Power Menu, horizontal lights, canvas mode, fingerprint animation, and a new Power menu.
There are also some other features like restructured Settings page, the ability to share images by long-pressing the image thumbnail in the Camera, and so on.
But as we said, this is a Beta Update and hence it will come with some bugs too. In fact, OnePlus has already mentioned it in their changelog –
- In some conditions, the Gallery app might be slower to load and some pictures may not be displayed in the Gallery.
- Potential risks of increased power consumption and instability.
- The devices (earphones, speakers, etc.) connected through Bluetooth may not be able to play sound occasionally.
- Brightness adjustment may lag in some conditions.
If you are wondering why there is no mention of the missing AOD I.e. Always on Display, then OnePlus has separately addressed it in their Statement that the Always-On-Display feature is under internal test and will be released in subsequent versions.
A solution to this lack of Aod is that you can use the “Ambient Display” by picking up your phone or tapping the screen. You can enable it from the Settings of your device.
So basically, users will have to wait further for the subsequent versions of the beta update (not sure how many) for the Always On Display feature.
I am sure not many of you want to wait long for one feature and hence here we are sharing an easy guide to fix Missing AOD on Oneplus 7 OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 Update.
Fix Missing AOD on OnePlus 7 series after Android 11 OxygenOS 11
All one has to do is enter a simple code and enable the feature from the OP Features Framework but of course, since this is a system-level tweaking, you will need admin level control of your device, I.e. Your device needs to be rooted.
In case you don’t know what rooting is or want to root your device, here are the necessary guides –
- How to Root OnePlus 7/ OnePlus 7 Pro without TWRP Recovery
- How to Root OnePlus 7T using Magisk Canary Apk
- How to Unlock Bootloader Using Fastboot on Android
- Download and Install TWRP Recovery on OnePlus 7.
However, rooting the Oneplus device only for AOD Feature, which will be back in the coming Oneplus beta updates isn’t worth it.
I would recommend you to follow this guide only if you are a tech geek or have an already rooted OnePlus 7 device.
