The camera setup of the Nothing Phone 1 appears to benefit the most from the latest Nothing OS update. Like some new Xiaomi, Realme, and Poco smartphones, the Nothing Phone 1 will now let users add a watermark to their photos. The update adds improvements to the ultra-wide camera's colour calibration, while improving colour consistency between the main and ultra-wide sensors. It also introduces a new motion detection algorithm that offers better stabilisation while capturing moving subjects. As per the changelog, Nothing has also increased the shooting speed of the ultra-wide camera in HDR mode.

With the update to Nothing OS 1.1.4, the company has integrated the latest features from the Nothing Ear 1 app into Nothing OS. This will let users switch between noise cancellation modes and modify gesture controls right from the quick settings panel and the settings section. The update improves the navigation accessibility on the phone by adding an option to flip the 3-button navigation bar. It also brings support for the LHDC audio codec.

According to Nothing's changelog, the update includes the September 2022 Android security patches. It also optimises the Always On Display feature to increase the battery life of the handset. As per the changelog, it adds a new UI for system updates and provides improved thermal performance, along with an improved face unlock algorithm.

Apart from the general bug fixes, the Nothing OS version 1.1.4 fixes network issues occurring with certain carriers. It also addresses issues that displayed incoming calls as coming from an unknown contact and a fingerprint issue with the HDFC Bank app.
