Important Information:

Due to version restrictions, please upgrade to the latest HarmonyOS version in order to receive the stable HarmonyOS 3 build. Post upgrade, please enable the user experience improvement feature in order to provide customer feedback on the latest software.

This update won’t delete your data, but it is still recommended that you back up all important files to your PC or cloud before upgrading, and confirm that the backup content is complete and valid, otherwise, there may be a risk of data loss.

Some third-party applications may not be compatible with HarmonyOS, therefore, you should update all of the apps via AppGallery. Once installed, your phone may experience heat, lag, or slow charging. This is caused by some self-optimization and adaptation actions performed by the system after the upgrade. Please rest assured that it will recover by itself after a period of time.

Also, It is recommended that you charge for 1 hour in your spare time. During the charging period, the system will optimize once to ensure that the mobile phone application is quickly adapted. This rollout requires 8GB of free space in internal storage and the installation package will be automatically deleted after the upgrade process is completed.
