After a long wait, Cyanogen Inc has finally released the Android 5.0-based Cyanogen OS 12 update for the OnePlus One smartphone. The update is now rolling out over-the-air and will reach your One smartphone shortly.
According to Cyanogen team, the update brings the usual Lollipop goodies as well as Cyanogen OS-specific tweaks to the phone. You can expect to see material design changes, Cyanogen email app powered by Boxer, as well as a new feature called App Themer, which will allow the One users to theme individual applications.
