Can I re-apply to Oxford University as a new application in (entry in 2022) while holding an unconditional offer from the previous application?

I am pretty sure UCAS informs to choose between these in Feb, so what I am thinking is that can't I decide in January as it is when Oxbridge sends out offers.

UCAS aren’t intending to allow applying for 2022 while holding a deferred offer. It was a one off for 2021 due to uncertainty around October/November exam results dates.

No.
So, I will need to decide between the previous and new application no matter what, right?

Yes. You need to decide before submitting a new application.

It’s perfectly fine to talk to your deferred university and ask if they’ll honour their offer if you reapply to them during your gap year. Many universities are quite happy to do that and it means that you aren’t risking losing out by reapplying. If you have a deferred offer then you have to ask your deferred university to withdraw your application anyway (you can’t do it yourself once the new UCAS cycle opens).
