This week OnePlus is releasing a new update for a number of its smartphones. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series have received a new update today, which includes bug fixes as well as the May 2021 security patch.
The most critical patch, in my opinion, is the one that deals with connectivity. SIM problems with Google Fi have been fixed, and 4G and Wi-Fi coverage has significantly improved.
Some OnePlus 7 and 7T owners have experienced issues after upgrading to OxygenOS 11, which is built on Android 11. That’s why OnePlus is releasing a new update for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro to address the majority, if not all, of the known issues caused by the current version of the operating system.
The native Phone and Camera software, as well as the Gallery and Shelf apps, have all been upgraded. Many of these applications have caused issues for their users.
Late last month, OnePlus released the first OxygenOS 11 stable update for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T sequence. The update brought the devices up to Android 11, as well as Android security updates for February 2021 and a few new features.
Users who upgraded to this construct, on the other hand, reported severe battery drain and camera quality issues on their devices. To fix these issues, OnePlus has released a new stable OxygenOS 11 update for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T sequence.
If you have already installed the previous Android 11 update, the update will be about 200MB. For those that are still using Android 10, the update kit is nearly 2GB in size.
Users must remain linked to a secure Wi-Fi network since the kit is distributed via OTA. Users will also receive the March Security patch as part of the kit.
OxygenOS 11 hotfix comes to 2019 OnePlus phones
The OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 update includes much of the same improvements as the OnePlus 8 and newer phones. As a result, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series smartphones get a new user interface, more customization options, and improved security features.
OnePlus, on the other hand, has strangely left out the Always-On Display (AOD) feature on these phones. This is surprising because the AOD option was available in the OxygenOS 11 beta version.
