The company is advising users to take a backup of their personal data before proceeding with the installation of Realme UI 3.0 Beta. Also, users must have at least 10GB of free storage space on the device, otherwise, the update installation process may fail.
Realme also said that the Early Access software builds may have an unpredictable impact on the devices and affect day-to-day performance. This means that the Realme UI 3.0 Beta software may not be stable and the battery life might take a hit. Those unhappy with the Realme UI 3.0 Beta update will have an option to downgrade to Realme UI 2.0. However, these users will not be eligible to apply for Realme UI 3.0 Early Access program in upcoming batches.
Also, since Android 12 is just a few months old, some developers may not have adapted their apps for it, and hence, such apps won’t work after updating the device to Android 12. Realme says that it can not guarantee that each and every person who applies for the Early Access program will get access to these builds, due to several factors.
