Some functions of the AOD don't have a menu yet.


There are a few other prerequisites before applying for Android 13 Early Access. Ensure that your device is not rooted. Always take a backup of your data while performing a major OS upgrade. Some third-party apps may experience compatibility issues with Android 13. Maintain a free disk space of over 10GB before attempting the update. Bear in mind that the update will be rolled out to only a few users and in a phased manner.
