OnePlus 7T users receive the OxygenOS 10.0.5 update along with the October 2019 security patch from Google. The new OS version brings a bunch of bug fixes that make it crucial for users to install the update. Even more, OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro devices will receive Open Beta 5 updates along with the system update.
OxygenOS 10.0.5 Update
The OxygenOS 10.0.5 for the OnePlus 7T has a selection of very important changes, fixing issues like UI-related problems, the color of the bottom bar while in dark mode, improved touch control, and more.
OnePlus devices have a double-tap to unlock feature, which was often faulty, but the software update fixes the issue.
Bug fixes are crucial for user experience, and it’s detrimental that they are added to software updates. However, the new OS version usually contains new features, which the OxygenOS 10.0.5 lacks. Still, it makes the device run smoother and highly increases the performance.
Some users have already received the update while others haven’t. If you are one of the users that are still waiting to update their OnePlus 7T to the latest software version, don’t worry. You should wait a few more days, and the update notification will surely appear. Also, you can check for updates manually.
Open Beta 5 Updates
OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro users who enrolled in the Beta program also started to receive Open Beta 5 updates, which include a variety of bug fixes along with some new features, like privacy notifications whenever apps ask for critical permissions like camera or GPS access.
The Open Beta 5 program is only available to testers who previously registered with OnePlus. If you own a OnePlus 7 or 7 Pro, you can also enroll in the program. Beta testers receive updates on their devices using OTA updates.
