OnePlus is still keeping the OnePlus 6 up to date with the latest security fixes, despite the fact that it is approaching three years old. The OnePlus 6 and 6T, along with the OnePlus 6T, received the February 2021 patches in late March, and now the April 2021 patches are rolling out… almost a month after Google released the fixes. I suppose it’s better to be late than never.
OnePlus 6 and 6T Update Change Log
- Updated Android Security Patch to 2021.04
- Fixed known issues and improved system stability
It’s all very exciting. This is a staged rollout, like all other OnePlus phone updates, so it will only be available to a small number of OnePlus 6/6T owners at first. If there are no bugs, OnePlus will continue to roll out the update until it is available to everyone.
It’s probably best to wait for the update to arrive on its own — OnePlus has recently rolled back a few updates due to bugs .
We’re still waiting for an official Android 11 update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T, despite the fact that Google’s Pixel devices received the update nearly eight months ago. OxygenOS 11, OnePlus’s customized version of Android 11, began rolling out to the OnePlus 7 and 7T series last month. OxygenOS 11 will be available for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro in October 2020. OnePlus stated earlier this year that it would provide additional information about when or if the 6/6T would receive the update, but we have yet to learn more about the company’s update plans.
