OxygenOS Roll Out for OnePlus 8/8T Series w/ March 2021 Patch

We’ve been critical of OnePlus’ update track record as of late, but maybe this is the sign of the firm turning over a new leaf? The jury is still out but with just a day or so to spare the March 2021 security patch is arriving for the OnePlus 8 and 8T series with the OxygenOS and updates. This isn’t the only notable, as the changelogs are almost identical, with plenty of attention paid to problems facing owners.

To summarize the main fixes that OxygenOS and resolve, if you’ve had problems with the navigation gesture sensitivity, expanded screenshot, keyboard double taps, lock screen voice assistant activation, the 4K CINE profile in the camera app, or the alarm clock, then these OTAs should help resolve all of those problems. You can check out the abridged changelog for both OnePlus 8 series devices below:
