Bengaluru, Sep 22: Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has announced rolling out the Android Pie 9.0 -- the ninth major update and the 16th version of the Android operating system (OS) -- for its OnePlus 6.

The software update brings "Adaptive Battery" feature which learns the apps you use the most and prioritises battery usage for those.

"OnePlus is driven by the idea of giving people the best possible hardware and software experience. First available on September 3 through the Open Beta Programme, Android Pie for the OnePlus 6 has been tested by our community and optimised for them," the company said in a statement late on Friday.

"With Android Pie platform update, the OnePlus 6 features the brand-new Android Pie UI, Android P gesture navigation, expanded accent colour customisations, among others," OnePlus added

The smartphone player is also looking to bringing Android P to its predecessor OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 as well.

"We're looking forward to bringing Android P to the OnePlus 3/3T, thus, ensuring OnePlus users all over the world can continue to enjoy new features," the smartphone player noted.

Another interesting feature that Android Pie brings is Adaptive Brightness, which learns how you like to set the brightness in different settings, and does it for you.

Thiruvananthapuram: Authorities in coastal areas of Kerala have been put on high alert after an intelligence report said 15 Islamic State terrorists had set off from Sri Lanka for the Lakshadweep islands on boats, police sources said.

Coastal police stations and police chiefs have been alerted about suspicious vessels. The sources said, though, such alerts are "usual practice", this time they have a specific information about the number of terrorists.

The coastal police department said it has been on alert since May 23 after the intelligence input came from Sri Lanka.

"We have been on alert since the Sri Lankan attack. We have alerted fishing vessel owners and others venturing into the sea to be cautious," a coastal police department official told PTI.

After the serial bomb blasts in Sri Lanka, Kerala was put on alert, especially after NIA investigations revealed that IS operatives had planned attacks in the state.
