OxygenOS 4.5.5 OTA is rolling out to the OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5 only launched on June 20th, but there has already been a flurry of updates for the handset bringing camera improvements, bug fixes, and optimizations. Today sees the beginning of an incremental rollout of OxygenOS 4.5.5 to the OnePlus 5 via OTA bringing improved WiFi connectivity and instructions on how to reconnect to a Windows 10 PC among other things.

Here’s the log:

  • Optimizations
    • Further improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity
    • Clearer voice calling
    • Video recording now consumes less battery
    • Vibration intensity when receiving calls is now tuned to a gentler level
  • Bug fixes
    • Fixed Wi-Fi signal consistently being displayed as weak
    • Fixed certain apps not able to work under IPv6 network settings
    • To restore connectivity to a Windows 10 PC, please turn off USB debugging prior to the upgrade

As mentioned, the OTA will begin rolling out incrementally. As a user, this can be frustrating, but it does help OnePlus in that any issues with the OTA will only affect a small portion of users before rolling it out to a broader base. That being said, it’s always worth heading over to Settings and checking to see if the OTA is available.
