Some OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro owners see delayed notifications or only receive notifications when they open the app.

One of the more common OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro problems since the update to Oxygen OS 12 has to do with the alarm clock. Some users are unable to dismiss an alarm from the lock screen. More concerning is that the alarm notification only shows up on the lock screen but doesn’t actually ring.

Some users are having an issue using their USB-C earphones or the dongle after the Oxygen OS 12 update.

Problems with Android Auto are common with most smartphones. Unsurprisingly, that is also the case with the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro.

You can still delete all the cards that appear by going through your Google settings, but you will still see a search bar at the top.
