OxygenOS Open Beta brings July security patch to the OnePlus 8 and 8T
Jul 26th, 2021
Better late than never, right? OnePlus is bringing the July Android Security Patch to the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8T with the latest OxygenOS Open Beta (via XDA Developers). For the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, this comes via the OxygenOS Open Beta 12, while the 8T is seeing it via OxygenOS Open Beta 7.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though OnePlus has officially announced the rollout just yet. It’s likely that the company is just rolling this out in waves before making a post on the OnePlus Forums. The changelog for all three devices is practically the same, bringing the July 2021 security patch along with a few other bug fixes.
Here’s the full changelog thanks to those who have already received the update:
- Improved system stability
- Fixed the issue that the face unlock failed in the QR scanning on WhatsApp
- Upgrade Android Security Patch to 2021.07
- Work-life balance
- Now work wifi can support added to life wifi
- Fixed the issue of failure to modify life and work mode
- OnePlus Store
- An intuitive and convenient way to manage your OnePlus account, get easy-to-access support, discover exciting members-only benefits, and shop for OnePlus products. (Please note that it can be uninstalled)
Just like we’ve seen with the OnePlus 9 Open Beta, this latest update automatically installs the latest version of the OnePlus Store app. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise, given that OnePlus is trying to provide users with quick access to support, along with being able to buy some new accessories. But on the bright side, you can uninstall the OnePlus Store app if you decide that you don’t want it taking up space.
