vivo and iQOO are starting their Android 13 Preview programs in India today. Owners of a vivo X80 Pro or an iQOO 9 Pro can sign up if they want to test drive the upcoming major update to FuntouchOS. The preview software will actually roll out a week from now (August 23), so why the rush?
Well, both the vivo and the iQOO programs will accept only 500 users each. So if you want in, you better hurry. The sign up process is simple – go to Settings, System Update, then tap the Settings icon in the upper right corner and then hit Trial version.
A preview version of FuntouchOS 13 (Android 13) is coming to the vivo X80 Pro and iQOO 9 Pro
More details for the vivo program here and for the iQOO program here. Just make sure that your phone is updated to the latest stable version or you won’t be able to join.
Those that get accepted will be able to test out the new FuntouchOS 13 on their phones. It goes without saying that this is an early version of the software, so it might have some bugs and issues that make it unsuitable for your daily driver. So, you might want to wait until a more stable release is available.
Many other vivo and iQOO phones are eligible for the version 13 update, of course. However, they will have to wait – there is no official timeline for the rollout of all supported devices yet.
