The latest Oxygen OS open beta program update for the OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T bring an array of software enhancements and improvements alongside some neat tweaks.

The Oxygen OS Open Beta 15 for the OnePlus 6 and Open Beta 7 for the OnePlus 6T add quite a few tweaks and software fixes. The biggest change is most definitely the improved photo editor, but there are screenshot optimizations and better weather alerts that more closely mirror your system time format.

Announced on the official OnePlus forums, this latest Open Beta naturally makes incremental tweaks that may or may not find their way into future full Oxygen OS releases. Check out the full changelog below for further details of all of the updates.

It’s not just the OnePlus 6 and 6T which have been updated. The OnePlus 5 and 5T have also been updated to Open Beta 29 and Open Beta 27 respectively ā€” and announced via the OnePlus Official Forums.

The updates are not quite as substantial on these slightly older handsets but the improved photo editor heads over to the 5 and 5T too along with those weather alert improvements. As for what else is included, check out the full changelog below.
