OxygenOS is now rolling out for the OnePlus 8T, with this update touting a fairly prompt August 2021 security patch and some added features.

A fairly similar update to the one rolling out for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, OxygenOS brings all the customization options of the Bitmoji AOD feature, under-the-hood prep for the upcoming OnePlus Buds Pro, plus some other fixes for software related issues.

Confirmed as rolling out over on the OnePlus Forums, it’s great to see the very latest patch come with this particular stable build. We’re hoping that OnePlus can really ramp up and get the entire product line updated to the latest security patch before early September, but time will tell. You can check out the full changelog below:
