VIVO announced the launch of FunTouch OS 14 on October 7, 2023. The initial rollout started with just two phones: the VIVO X90 Pro and iQOO 11, kicking off in mid-October.

With the iQOO lineup (beyond the iQOO 11 which got it early), models like the iQOO 9 Pro, 9T, and others are set to receive the update in stages, continuing through April 2024. The entire process – with supported phones – is expected to conclude in May 2024. And then work begins on FunTouch OS 15.
