OnePlus 6 and 6T start receiving stable Android 10 Oxygen OS 10.0.1 update
We have been monitoring the OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 upgrade process closely for a while now, with OnePlus first issuing beta builds to both devices in late October. The company then released a stable version of Oxygen OS to the two handsets at the beginning of last month, but swiftly pulled the update because of several bugs. OnePlus has been keeping fans on tenterhooks since, and has been testing a newer build throughout November.
The company then released Android 10 to devices running Hydrogen OS, the Chinese version of Oxygen OS. OnePlus harmonised the two OSes a few years ago, so we suspected that the arrival of Hydrogen OS 10 on the OnePlus 6 and 6T meant that OnePlus would soon issue a new stable Oxygen OS 10 build too.
While OnePlus has not updated its official "OxygenOS 10.0 for the OnePlus 6 and 6T" forum thread since November 29, it seems that the company has now started rolling out Oxygen OS 10.0.1 to both devices. The update is available over the air (OTA) currently, and comes in two forms, as the screenshots below demonstrate. If your device is running Oxygen OS 10.0, then you will receive a 50 MB update to 10.0.1. By contrast, devices running Android 9.0 Pie-based builds will be notified of a 1.7 GB download. The changelog for both is as follows:
- Upgraded to Android 10
- Brand new UI for Android Q
- Updated Android security patch to 2019.10
- Fixed the fingerprint identification issue
- Solved the animation lag for fingerprint unlock
- Fixed the automatic reboot issue after upgrade
- Improved the performance and fixed known issues
- Fixed the 5Ghz WiFi connection
Interestingly, both Oxygen OS 10.0 and 10.1 include the October 2019 Android security patch. While we imagine that this is a mistake, it is rather misleading of OnePlus to state that updating from Oxygen OS 10.0 to 10.1 also installs a newer security patch.
Please be aware that some people are reporting that their handsets are yet to prompt that Oxygen OS 10.0.1 is available to download. Hence, it seems that OnePlus is issuing the update in batches, so expect to see it arrive within the next few days and weeks if it has not already.
