OxygenOS Open Beta 14 and Beta 4 are now rolling out for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, with plenty of tweaks and the May 2020 security patch.

As you’d expect, the latest beta updates were announced over on the official OnePlus forums in a duo of posts. It brings a number of core fixes and tweaks for the early-2019 OnePlus 7 series devices including fixes for the disappearing contacts in the address book, adds more clock style options for the ambient display, plus the May 2020 security patch.


[Update 05/21]: Shortly after publishing, the OxygenOS Beta builds for the entire OnePlus 7 series appear to have been pulled. We’re not sure the reason why, but can only assume that it is due to a major bug or problem. We have heard reports that battery life was severely affected, but it’s still not clear why OnePlus would pull the OTA files so suddenly. If you have installed, be sure to let us know if you have encountered any major bugs or issues down in the comments section below.


Also included in OxygenOS Open Beta 4 and 14 are some tweaks to the software voice input, and you can now view call recording history within the phone app. This might be a neat inclusion for those recording their calls regularly. You can check out the full (identical) changelogs for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series below:
