Nothing OS 2.0.5 is now being rolled out for Phone (1) users, following the release of 2.0.4 about a month and a half ago and Phone (2) devices receiving the same update a month ago. This update brings the usual system stability fixes, security patches, and software tweaks.
While the update is relatively minor and doesn’t come with any major user-facing changes, it does include a few small improvements to the user experience. Specifically, it improves the sync between headphone and phone volumes, as well as optimizes the display of the voice-over-WiFi icon in the status bar. It also comes with an updated security patch, which is essential for keeping devices running smoothly and securely.
Phone (1) users can download the 66.76 MB update directly from their phone’s Settings menu by going to System > System update. The full changelog is as follows:
– Improved synchronization between phone and headphone volumes
– Optimized display of the VoWiFi icon in the status bar
– Updated security patch for overall protection
– Addressed several system stability issues to provide a smoother user experience
As is typical with these firmware updates, the rollout is staged, so not everyone will receive the update at the same time. If the update isn’t available on the device yet, it should arrive soon. This staggered approach is intended to monitor for any potential issues that may arise. In case of any problems, the company provides instructions on how to use its rollback package for Nothing OS 2.0.4.
Meanwhile, for Phone (2) users, there is an Android 14 open beta available for those who want to try out the latest and greatest. For other users, Nothing OS is still on Android 13 in its stable builds.
