A new OTA update for the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 has been released and it comes with a bunch of much-needed fixes and some neat new additions. Note that the OTA will not update your Zenfone Max Pro M1 to Android 10. Surprisingly ahead of most brands, Asus has released the December security patch in the new OTA update. This is even quicker than fast-updating brands like OnePlus, as its phones are still running on the November security patch.
