OnePlus has announced (opens in new tab)) that it has started rolling out a new software update for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro phones. The latest update, which arrives as OxygenOS v10.0.3, comes with the November Android security patch. Needless to say, it is certainly disappointing that the two flagship devices are only now getting the November Android security patch, when Google and Samsung are pushing the December security patch to their phones.
Aside from the November security patch, the update doesn't bring any new feature. However, it does come with improved system stability and general bug fixes. Despite being a minor update, OnePlus says the update will be roll out incrementally, which means it will only be available for a small number of users initially. A broader rollout is expected to commence "in a few days."
You can look for the update manually by heading to Settings > Updates on your phone. If you cannot wait for the update to become available for your device, you can download and install it with the help of the Oxygen Updater app.
In the coming days, we expect OnePlus to release a new OxygenOS update for the newer OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro as well, which currently have the October security patch. The latest December Android security patch, on the other hand, will probably begin rolling out to both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series phones sometime next month.
Falling behind, not very impressive.
With the exception of Pixel phones, who provides more frequent updates than OnePlus?
Nokia, Samsung with the S10 and note 10 (my s10e has the December patch) pretty sure i read some Sony's got updated for December. There's probably others but if you want me to keep track for you you'll have to pay me.
