Starting with the OxygenOS 10.0.5 update, OnePlus announced on its forums that the OnePlus 7T is now receiving the update. The changelog suggests that the update brings along the October Android security patch, a fix for the double-tap gesture for screen activation, and improved system stability and general bug fixes. The update is rolling out in a staged manner; therefore users should not be surprised if they don't receive the update immediately. We advise you to keep checking manually in Settings, if you haven't received a notification already.
Alongside the OnePlus 7T update, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro users are now receiving the OxygenOS Open Beta 5 update. The user submitted changelog suggests that this update brings optimised touch experience while playing games, a fix for the navigation bar colour under dark mode, new privacy alerts for apps with permission access to camera, locations, etc, and improved system stability as well. The update also improves the stability of the weather app and fixes known issues, and also optimises the Emergency Rescuer feature to improve the product experience. If you are a beta tester on one of the mentioned phones, you should receive the update soon via an OTA. Both of these update rollouts were first reported by XDA Developers.
