This past weekend OnePlus announced they were rolling out a small but important update the OxygenOS operating system for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T smartphones. Although the update is small, it does include an important security update.
According to OnePlus, the update brings OxygenOS up to version 5.1.3. The security issue OnePlus addresses with this update involves the bootloader. Some other bug fixes and enhancements are part of the update as well.
Those improvements are all background type issues, so users may be a bit disappointed to not have any new features to tinker around with. However, one group of users will notice something useful. Some owners were having trouble with the Bluetooth connection with their vehicles and OnePlus says they have fixed that problem with this update.
The update started rolling out on Sunday, so it should have hit most devices by now. If yours does not have it yet, it should be close to being available.
