  • Android 15 Beta on the OnePlus 12 comes with a Repair mode that saves you from resetting your device when sending it for a repair without compromising your privacy.
  • However, you need to go through the device setup in Repair mode, wasting some time until you can reach the device’s home screen. We hope to see this minor annoyance fixed if OnePlus brings the feature to Oxygen OS 15’s stable release.

We’re excited to taste Android 15 on our devices, but we have to wait a few more months for the stable releases to arrive. Meanwhile, Pixel owners can install Android 15 Beta 2 on their devices in a few easy steps. If you don’t have a Pixel, you can try Beta 1 on select phones from other OEMs. OnePlus has released a Beta 1 build for the OnePlus 12, giving us a glimpse of what features could be coming to a future Oxygen OS build based on Android 15. Repair mode is one such feature, though it still needs some more polish.

When you install Android 15 Beta on the OnePlus 12, you will find a new Repair mode option in Settings > System & updates > Repair mode. As the name implies, Repair mode hides your personal information so you can send in your device for a repair without needing a data wipe. It enables the repair technician to conduct the repair and check phone functionality without compromising your privacy.
