New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on November 2, 2019) follows:
OnePlus’ OxygenOS 10, the Android 10 based custom skin, is a major improvement over the earlier versions. The new OS was already made available to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, while OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro were launched with the latest version.
For the OnePlus 6/6T, the stable version was expected to rollout sometime this month.
In October, OnePlus revealed the roadmap of its Android 10 update for its 2017 and 2018 smartphones. At the time, the Chinese company said that the stable OS would roll out sometime in November.
Throughout last month, the company gave signals that it is on track to meet its roadmap for the Android 10 roll out. A couple of weeks back, the OnePlus 6/6T started to get the Android 10 update via Open Beta channel. In China, however, the same update was made available a week before.
Now, several OnePlus 6/6T users on OnePlus forums are reporting receiving the stable Android 10 update. Though most users are reporting getting the update for OnePlus 6T, the OxygenOS 10.0 update for OnePlus 6 should be available as well.
The update size is pretty big (1.8 GB), so it is recommended that you use WiFi to download and install it.
Here is the full changelog;
– Upgraded to Android 10
– Brand new UI design
– Enhanced location permissions for privacy
– New customization feature in Settings allowing you to choose icon shapes to be displayed in the Quick
– General bug fixes and improvements
Full Screen Gestures
– Added inward swipes from the left or right edge of the screen to go back
– Added a bottom navigation bar to allow switching left or right for recent apps
– New Game Space feature now joins all your favorite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience
– Intelligent info based on specific times, locations and events for Ambient Display (Settings – Display – Ambient Display – Smart Display)
– Now possible to block spam by keywords for Message (Messages – Spam – Settings -Blocking settings)
Most of the changes are related to Android 10, such as icon shape customization, new gesture navigation system and more. Some OxygenOS-specific features that are new to the OnePlus 6 series are contextual display feature and keyword blocking.
It must be noted that the changelog does not include the security patch level. This update brings the October 2019 security patches compared to the August 2019 security patch level in the last stable update.
As always, the rollout process is gradual. It isn’t available in all regions, and that’s why some users reported getting the update using a VPN by connecting to markets where the update is already available, such as Germany.
Also, those who converted a T-Mobile branded OnePlus 6T to the international model are advised to hold off the update until others confirmed that it is safe. Previously, the Open Beta version presented some serious issues for the converted devices.
Thanks to the collaboration between PiunikaWeb and the Oxygen Updater project, our readers can now download the full update package of OxygenOS 10.0 right away. For now, the download link for OnePlus 6 isn’t available (we will update it as soon it is there).
