The update brings battery percentage support for Apple AirPods, battery status improvements, and more
Nothing is rolling out a fresh software update for the Nothing Phone 1, but it’s not the Android 13 beta that Carl Pei teased recently. Instead, it’s another Android 12-based update that brings the latest security patches to the device, a new feature, and some performance improvements.
As per recent reports on our Nothing Phone 1 forums, the latest Nothing OS update (firmware version 1.1.7) has started rolling out to users. It brings the Android security patches for October 2022 and November 2022 to the device and battery percentage support for Apple AirPods. If you use your AirPods with a Nothing Phone 1, you can now view its remaining battery on your phone by enabling the new feature from the Experimental features section in the device settings.
Along with these changes, Nothing OS 1.1.7 brings system fluidity improvements to reduce stutters and lags, adjustments for the thermal threshold to better balance performance and temperature, audio quality improvements for video recordings, and more accurate battery status. The update also fixes a few bugs. Check out the full changelog in the section below.
