The update brings a Shadow-Reflective Clock that simulates the sun's and moon's orientation. The home screen has a new clock widget to showcase multiple time zones across regions. Touch input interactions across the interface are said to be improved with upgrades to Quantum Animation Engine 4.0 with the latest firmware release.

The next iteration of Always-On Display will showcase live information about your music, ride-hailing, and food delivery apps, provided they're adapted to the new version of the operating system. The OxygenOS 13 also brings a Meeting Assistant to enhance the meeting connecting and note-taking experience for the OnePlus 10T users. The other perks include adding large folders to the home screen.

While the latest OxygenOS changelog provided by OnePlus includes many other changes, the other primary ones also come in the security and privacy section.

There is a new automatic pixelation feature for chat screenshots. With the latest update, OnePlus says, "the system can identify and automatically pixelate profile pictures and display names in a chat screenshot to protect your privacy."

Also, for enhanced security, OnePlus offers Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt all files, especially private ones. Lastly, the gaming experience is said to have improved on OnePlus' one of the best Android phones, with upgrades to HyperBoost GPA 4.0, which promises to bring stability to frame rate and balance the performance next to power consumption in crucial situations.
