If you’re a OnePlus 7 or 7T series device owner, you’ll be pleased to hear that the OxygenOS Open Beta 17 and Open Beta 7 updates are now rolling out with plenty of neat fixes and additions.

Provided you have enrolled on the OxygenOS Open Beta program, the quintet of smartphones should now all be receiving the latest update OTA — or over the coming days. The patches are identical for all devices, with the August 2020 security patch probably being the most important to avid fans. They were confirmed on the OnePlus Forums with dedicated posts for the early-2019 and late-2019 hardware.

There is also a new Tips & Support page within Settings where you can request advice, help, or support and more. Should you update, you’ll also get numerous fixes for things such as Lockbox errors, optimizations for the extended screenshot feature, File Manager missing content, and Wi-Fi transfer stability improvements. You can check out the full changelog below:
