OnePlus has officially released the OxygenOS 9.0.5 software update for its latest OnePlus 6T flagship. The update is minor in nature and brings only a couple of system optimisations - including improvements for Screen Unlock or the in-display fingerprint sensor and general unspecified bug fixes. Thanks to the minimal nature of the update, the OxygenOS 9.0.5 update on the OnePlus 6T has a file size of about 94MB and is rolling out now via the OTA method. OnePlus claims that the OTA will roll out in a staged manner.
We have received the latest OxygenOS 9.0.5 update on the OnePlus 6T review unit provided to us by the manufacturer, however the improvement in Screen Unlock does not seem apparent just yet. Additionally, there seem to be no major UI changes in terms of the other unspecified bug fixes and improvements mentioned. The update will be released in a gradual manner to avoid any major bugs before a wider rollout follows.
To recall, the last OxygenOS 9.0.4 software update also brought certain improvements for Screen Unlock. It also offered improvements in terms of full screen gestures, Nightscape mode, Studio Lighting, and brought the latest Android November security patch to the OnePlus 6T.
