Back in May, following a months-long wait, OnePlus finally pushed a stable release of Oxygen OS 10 to its pair of 2017 flagships. Unfortunately, the update was something of a mess. It broke features like electronic image stabilization (EIS) and tanked battery life. In fact, it was such a disaster, OnePlus didn’t list it on its support website in hopes of preventing people from downloading it. In September, the company ended up apologizing for the delay in getting a follow-up update out. Two months later, 10.0.1 is finally making its way to people.
In addition to fixes for the issues Oxygen OS 10 brought along to the OP5/5T, the update brings the two phones up to Android’s September security patch — which is an improvement but we’re now in November. In any case, see the full list of changes below.
- Fixed the abnormal call recording issue.
- Fixed the de-activated alarm issue when the phone was powered off.
- Updated Android Security Patch to 2020. 09
- Updated GMS package to 2020.08.
- Full Screen Gestures
- Back gesture from the bottom of the screen is available (OP5T only).
- Electronic Image Stabilization has been added, bringing you the more stable shooting experience.
You may have to wait a little while longer to download 10.0.1 to your phone. To start, the company says it’s first pushing the update to OnePlus 5 devices, with a rollout to OnePlus 5T phones to follow. Second, in both cases, the company is going with an incremental release so it can halt the rollout if any unexpected bugs crop up.
