OnePlus has started releasing the very first OxygenOS update for its latest flagship device this year, the OnePlus 3T. But unfortunately, when the first OxygenOS 3.5.4 update made many OnePlus 3T disappointed as it is still based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. However, that does not mean there is nothing special, the new update brings a lot of important bug fixes, so we do recommend installing this patch on your OnePlus 3T as soon as possible. It is just 24MB, so you don’t need much time to download and install the update on your OnePlus 3T.
This new update will optimize for US TMO network, Bluetooth connectivity for Mazda cars, battery saving mode (When Battery Saving Mode is closed, GPS and Orientation Preferences will automatically be restored in case being turned on before), reduce lag when battery is down below the 5%, fix flashlight usability issue in WhatsApp, increase system stability, and fix various bugs.
Although the OxygenOS 3.5.4 is just a small update, OnePlus still announces many users today. A bigger rollout is expected to be released in a few days, so you should be patient.

Before that, OnePlus also rolled out the second Android 7.0 Nougat based OxygenOS Open Beta 8 update for its flagship, OnePlus 3, with several new customizations and improvements. Some of the main changes in the update are adding expanded screenshots, optimizing Shelf design, general UI, DPI, improving battery performance, stability and performance, and general bug fixes. But this update is just available via OTA only for users who have installed a previous Open Beta build. If you haven’t, you will have to flash the latest ADB sideload build. However, before doing that, make sure you make a full backup of your data, as your data will be lost after flashing the new update.
Finally, the official Android 7.0 Nougat update for both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T is expected to be rolled out in the next month, so users should be patient.
