OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro July security update adds Buds support, fixes ARCore failure & wireless charging

OnePlus has had a pretty decent track record when it comes to rolling out updates to its devices. This could be due to the fact that the company doesn’t have a catalog that is as vast as other Android OEMs.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the company’s 2020 flagship devices have been pretty well updated. Already, there’s an Android 11 Beta 2 update available for these devices so it is safe to say that these two are among the first devices in line for an update to Android 11.

Even as that continues, users of the Oneplus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro on the stable channel have not been left behind. Today, the company is rolling out the latest July 2020 security patch to these devices.

This update brings more than just a little bump in the system’s security patch level. With this update, the OnePlus 8 devices now get better support for the OnePlus Buds. This update also fixes issues with wireless charging and ARCore among other issues. Below is the update’s changelog.
