In India, the OxygenOS 13 Open Beta 2 was released for the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro and 8T models. This is a significant change in the smartphone manufacturer’s approach to software updates.
OnePlus was going to release two significant software updates for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, based on the Android Central report.
Significant Updates on The Display
The Chinese smartphone maker announced this in a forum thread called OnePlus Community. The latest update, which also arrives on the OnePlus 10R, focuses on improving the user interface.
It has new colors, symbols, elements, and movements in Aqua Orphic Design.
The update includes improvements to the Always-on Display feature, a redesigned sidebar toolkit, better performance, media playback controls in Quick Settings, and increased security.
Those who have participated in the beta program of the OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 10R series should also access additional Always-On Display and Emoji animations to create unique emoji characters.
The lock screen loading animation and screen off gestures in the Settings menu have been updated by OnePlus to fix previous issues. The beta update adds huge folders to the home screen, allowing applications to be launched in a consolidated space with a single tap.

Tools To Increase Productivity and Security Have Added
OnePlus also introduces the Meeting Assistant feature that makes it easy to save meeting agendas. The tech company introduced more markup tools to change screenshots and the ability to save images to save notes.
The update also introduces a new space for children where parents can regulate their children’s screen time, alert them to the dangers of blue light, and activate other eye protection measures.
Moreover, the latest version includes the Android security patch for October 2022 and many other security and privacy improvements.
Reported Issues And Update Requirements
There are, however, a few documented bugs in the updated system. The problem is a black screen that appears when activating the camera in a Messenger conversation. The lock screen also shows a strange charging prompt and an unexpected life feature.
OnePlus 10 Pro and other high-end Android OnePlus devices started receiving the stable OxygenOS 13 in September.
To download the update, OnePlus recommends that your phone has at least 30% battery life and at least 5.5 GB of free space. In addition, you must have the latest version of OxygenOS 12 (C.35 / 36) on your device.
Another Newly Released Operating System Update
Elsewhere, reports say Google has been distributing the Android 13 update for a while now. It’s been months since the tech giant released an updated version for Pixel phones in August.
While some phone makers like OnePlus have yet to release the Android 13 update for all their compatible phones, T-Mobile has already announced which phones will be updated.
