Things to keep in mind before installing ColorOS 13 update
OPPO advises users to backup their data before installing the update on their phones in case they face any issue. After installation, the OS incorporates various actions on its own to optimize the device’s performance. OPPO claims that this may lead to the device overheating, battery draining quickly, slowing down some apps, etc. Hence, users are recommended to turn off their device screen and charge overnight after successfully installing the update.
Furthermore, some third-party apps may crash frequently due to incompatibility with the new ColorOS 13 update. Hence, users are advised to first update the respective apps from Play Store or App Market for better performance.
