When OnePlus launched the OnePlus 10T, the company promised the phone would receive three OS updates and four years’ worth of security patches. The phone was released with OxygenOS 12, so this update will be one of the three OS updates.
The firmware update is around 5 GB in size and it is based on Android 13. OnePlus said this update will be available initially to users who participated in the Open Beta versions, and then it’ll be gradually pushed to more users.
