ASUS ROG Phone II finally picks up the stable Android 11 update

The update arrives a year after the phone was upgraded to Android 10.

What you need to know

  • ASUS has started rolling out the Android 11 update for the ROG Phone II.
  • The update introduces a ton of new features and changes as part of Android 11.
  • However, it is possible that the update will take several weeks to reach everyone.

ASUS has started pushing the stable Android 11 update to the two-year old ROG Phone II after launching its closed beta program in September.

Interestingly, the update comes a year after the phone picked up Android 10. It should be noted that the ROG Phone II debuted in 2019 with Android 9 Pie out of the box, so the timing of the latest update isn't too bad by ASUS' standards.

The update includes many of Android 11's new features, such as the system's notification bar style, a built-in screen recorder, and improved privacy features. Of course, it includes a much-needed UI update. Click here to see the complete changelog.

In addition, the armoury crate hub, game wizard, file management, clock, picture library, and other applications have been updated. ASUS also introduced a novel feature that allows you to keep Bluetooth enabled even when the phone is in airplane mode.

However, the update comes a little too late for the ROG Phone II, as Android 12 has already begun to arrive on some of the best Android phones, including the ASUS Zenfone 8 series.

To see if the update is available for your ROG Phone II, open the Settings app and navigate to About > System update. The changelog, however, is only available on ASUS' Chinese website, with no mention of it on the company's English website.

It may also take a few weeks for everyone to receive the update. If you don't want to wait that long, though, the OTA is available via XDA Developers.

$650 at Amazon

With a 5.9-inch 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED display, the Snapdragon 888, and impressive battery life, the ASUS Zenfone 8 brings 2021 flagship specs to a smaller size than most smartphones in its class. If you're looking for a smartphone that fits in your pocket, this is a great option.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
