OnePlus Launcher update fixes issue which affected OnePlus 6T as well
Update (November 10):
A OnePlus bug hunter has confirmed this bug fix here.
Original story follows:
The OnePlus Launcher app has received a new update. If you take a look at the app’s Play Store listing, you’ll find the following change-log:
- Moved drawer options to launcher settings
- Optimized new install dot
- Improved performance
While the change-log doesn’t mention it, we are seeing reports from users that this update has fixed a bug that caused the phone to go to the Home screen after unlocking instead of the app that was in the foreground when the device was locked.
Multiple users have confirmed this here as well as on the following Reddit thread:
Good news for OnePlus 6T users
Since the bug discussed above was affecting OnePlus 6T as well, this is good news for users of the newly launched flagship device.
The OnePlus 6T – as is usually the case with OnePlus smartphones – is a great smartphone for the price tag it carries. But, unsurprisingly, it’s not immune to problems. However, it’s good that OnePlus is acting swiftly to quash issues and bugs plaguing the device (and of course to add improvements as well).
Testimony to this is the fact that two system updates aimed at the OnePlus 6T have been pushed in a short span of 10 days it’s been on sale.
The OxygenOS 9.0.5 update was rolled out earlier this week. Apart from some general bug fixes and improvements, it included improvements related to the Screen Unlock feature.
There were some user reports that the unlock speed for the in-display fingerprint sensor increased after the update, but not everyone thought the same way.
Moving on, the very first update arrived as OxygenOS 9.0.4, and brought along some system and camera improvements like brand new gestures, inclusion of the Studio Lighting effect and improvements to Nightscape.
Like every other smartphone in the market, the OnePlus 6T also disappointed many when it was made official, but then, it’s not possible to come up with something that literally everyone loves.
What’s good is the company is improving the device with very frequent updates, something which T-Mobile OnePlus 6T users are terribly missing as their units haven’t received a single update yet.
