OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T have started gaining a minor OTA update which is OxygenOS 5.1.5. The update brings a minor improvement to the phone’s lock screen. However, it adds one important thing which is the August security patch to the device.
It should be noted that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T have become the first devices from the company to gain the latest security patch. OnePlus 6 did receive an update a week ago but without the latest security fixes.
Now the OnePlus 5/5T and the OnePlus 6 can be unlocked via PIN input without having to tap on the checkmark for confirmation. Just confirm PIN without tapping √ to unlock the phone (Settings -> Security & lock screen -> Screen lock -> PIN).
The OTA is a staged rollout so will take some time to reach every OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T device. The broader rollout will happen in a few days. So, have patience and wait for the update to come your way. Also, the OTA software isn’t region specific so VPN downloads won’t work.
The latest OTA update which was OxygenOS 5.1.4 brought many new features and optimizations compared to the latest one. It added group messaging, improved photo clarity, and added sleep standby optimization.
