The last Magisk v22 version brought a major change by eliminating Magisk Manager app and a separate Magisk zip and merging them into a standalone APK. According to the developer, the two separate entities often caused confusion as the Magisk zip and Manager APK versions were co-dependent. Now you only need Magisk 22.1 APK installed in order to root your Android device.
Magisk 22.1 APK or Magisk 22.1 ZIP is here for download with several bug fixes. It features all the changes from Magisk 22 and improves on it. For one, it prevents multiple installation sessions running in parallel from within the app. the update also prevent OutOfMemory crashes and several under the hood changes for stability and compatibility with many Android devices or the latest TWRP recovery.
Magisk Manager and Magisk zip are merging into one standalone APK. The developer, John Wu, recently tweeted that Magisk zip and manager app will be bundled into a standalone APK stating v22.
Moreover, there is no need to flash the Magisk zip via TWRP anymore separately. All you need to do is install the main Magisk 22.1 APK onto your phone and setup everything from within the app.
