September 23: OPPO ColorOS 14 may introduce dynamic island-style alerts similar to the iPhone, according to the latest report. These include a new alert style, presumably based on Apple’s Dynamic Island. However, Oppo could be engaging in very different ways, the most notable of which appears to be the fact that the notification “capsules” are black; At the same time, the color of iOS 17 is white.
ColorOS 14 update release timeline:
Last year, ColorOS 13 was launched in August, soon after Google launched Android 13 in the same month. Meanwhile, Google is all set to launch Android 14 this August end or early September, and we can expect ColorOS 14 launch after that. The launch doesn’t mean that the ColorOS 14 update will reach your phones until late August or early September. The announcement will reveal the features of the new OS update and the timeline for when devices will receive the update.
ColorOS 14 is the latest update to Oppo’s custom skin based on Android 14. All the latest Oppo smartphones that were launched recently are being updated to the next version of the brand’s software skin. But devices launched in 2021 and earlier are at risk of not being updated to ColorOS 14. Check eligible ColorOS 14 device list here.
