OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T smartphones have received the new OxygenOS 9.0.6 and OxygenOS 9.0.14 updates. These latest updates bring the May 2019 security patches so to shield the devices against any potential threat. The updates also carry a few other changes, including the general bug fixes and improvements.
Under new features related to Bluetooth, the latest updates for both the phones bring support for Quick Pairing of Bullets Wireless 2. There’s now improved stability and compatibility of Bluetooth. The confirm password UI for hidden space feature in OnePlus Launcher has also been improved.
There’s one camera improvement as well but only for the OnePlus 6T. According to OnePlus’ changelog, the photo quality of the front camera has been improved. However, it doesn’t specify what exactly has been tweaked. There are bug fixes involving ringtones being outdated for contacts, the speed dialer being cleared, and loading credentials for Wi-Fi logins.
Note that this OTA is incremental and will reach a small percentage of users first, and a broader rollout will happen in a few days.
If you’re not a beta member but wishes to join then you must know that once migrating to this new path, you will continue to receive Open beta OTA and official stable OTAs will not be released to your device. Also, beta builds are sometimes not as stable as the official OTAs so do remember there’s risk associated in the beta channel.
