Honor 50 and 60 getting new features with MagicOS update



Honor 50

Honor is rolling out a new software update with MagicOS for Honor 50 and Honor 60 series users. This update has new features for both of the devices including the latest control panel and notification separation.

You can now swipe from the top right to open the quick settings dubbed “Control Center” and from the side opens “Notifications Center”. This is an upgrade from the past combination of quick settings and system/app notifications.

However, now the new features simplify the process and allow you to smartly manage these two different areas. This approach is very similar to EMUI and HarmonyOS devices.

The MagicOS software update for Honor 50 and Honor 60 series also brings new optimizations and improvements for features and you can check them below. Also, this update requires users to first get the base build version and then move to the latest software update.

Over the past month, Honor spotted releasing this update for recent flagship devices and now, it’s reaching more users.
