Android Nougat 7.1.1 Comes in The Latest OnePlus 3 and 3T Update

OnePlus has released OxygenOS 4.1.3 this morning for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.  The update brings a host of improvements to the flagship devices along with upgrading the platform to Android Nougat 7.1.1.  For those who aren’t OnePlus users, OxygenOS is the company’s version of Android.  It is actually a very-near stock Android experience with a few tweaks and is a solid performing platform that OnePlus has been continually updating these past few months.

As has been the case in the past, OnePlus is slow rolling the OTA update out to users.  Therefore, it could be a few days before everyone sees the update hit their devices.

Google Assistant Starts Rolling to The OnePlus 3 & 3T

OnePlus took to Twitter today with some good news for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T owners.  Google Assistant is coming your way.  The built in assistant, which Google announced was coming to all devices running Marshmallow and Nougat, has been slowly making the rounds as manufactures work with Google to get it on their devices.  OnePlus is just one of the latest but it is good to see that manufactures aren’t standing in the way of getting it out to customers.

If you own a 3 or a 3T, like other devices who have already received Google Assistant, there isn’t anything you need to do other than make sure you have the latest build of the Google Search app on your phone.  That more-or-less tells Google your phone is ready to be updated on the backend.

OnePlus Releases A Minor Update to OxygenOS

OnePlus has rolled out another small but significant update to OxygenOS 4.0 for their OnePlus 3 and 3T.  The update bumps the build up to 4.0.3 and contains a number of bug fixes and patches.  Two of the items addressed in the release have to do with Wi-Fi, with IPv6 now supported and an improved Wi-Fi Switcher.  This feature will switch your connection over to data if your Wi-Fi signal is consistently poor.

The camera app has also been updated, increasing stability in the app according to the release notes.

OnePlus Rolls Out OxygenOS 4.0.1 for The OnePlus 3 and 3T

A little over a week after the initial Nougat-based OxygenOS 4.0 release, OnePlus has released a small update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The new OxygenOS 4.0.1 build is rolling out to both devices currently and is primarily focused on addressing bugs and stability issues with the OS on these devices.  As OnePlus does, the update will be released to a small number of users first then roll out to the larger population as confirmation all is well with the update comes into them.

As for what is addressed, probably the biggest news is the updated APN settings.  After the initial OxygenOS 4.0 update, many 3 and 3T owners had network connectivity issues with their carrier.  This update should resolve those issues.  However, in the posting announcing the update, OnePlus is saying that if you still have issues, to manually adjust the APN settings or, worst case, report it to the product team at OnePlus with your phone model and carrier involved so they can help identify the issue and resolve it.

OnePlus 3 and 3T See Android Nougat Update

Keeping with their self imposed end-of-2016 deadline, OnePlus has released the Android Nougat based OxygenOS 4.0 update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The update was released very late on December 31st, hitting the deadline and the update is now making its way out to all owners of the 3 and 3T.  While it still may take a few days for your phone to see it, it is out and it is only a matter of time.

The update is all focused on Android Nougat.  The release notes in the OnePlus forums essentially highlight all of the features of Nougat and speak very little of any other changes that the company has made in their custom version of Android.

OnePlus 3 Sees OxygenOS Update – But Not THAT Update (Yet)

OnePlus has begun rolling out OxygenOS 3.2.8 for the OnePlus 3 but before you get all excited, no, it’s not Nougat.  Not yet at least.  The update is a small one but does bring several improvements and fixes to the OP3, the company’s flagship device until a couple of weeks ago with then 3T was announced.  Still, OnePlus has remained committed to getting software updates out for both the 3 and the 3T and even though this update isn’t Nougat, that is expected before the end of the year.

So what’s in this update?  Quite a few nice changes and updates

OnePlus Releases Beta 6 of OxygenOS 3.5.5 for the OnePlus 3

OnePlus has released a 6th beta of their Android Nougat based OxygenOS release for the OnePlus 3.  The new build, version 3.5.5, brings a lot of changes as the company gets ready for a public release of the update in December.  If you already have the beta installed on your OnePlus 3, this update to the home-brew version of Android for the OP3 will come to you via an OTA update.  If you are not a part of the beta program, you can sign up and then do a manual flash of your device to this latest build.

As for what is addressed in this update, it is pretty extensive and for those in the beta program, its well worth the update.

OnePlus Rolling Out OxygenOS 3.2.6 to OnePlus 3 Devices

OnePlus has announced that a big update for OxygenOS is coming to the OnePlus 3 starting today.  The updated build is version 3.2.6 and will have a small roll out today with a broader roll out starting tomorrow.  The Android Marshmallow-based build has a significant number of performance and bug fixes in the update and if you have a OnePlus 3, you will most certainly want to get this installed on your device as soon as it comes to it.  You should get an OTA update over the course of the next few days and you can manually check for it by going to Settings>About Phone>System Update.

OxygenOS Updated for OnePlus 3

The OnePlus team has begun rolling out an OTA update to the OnePlus 3 that brings a sizable number of improvements to the device.  OxygenOS 3.2.2 is being rolled out to users in phases as the company continues to tweak and improve their homebrew version of Android Marshmallow for the flagship phone.  One of the big changes is the improvement of notification management in Doze, the battery saving feature of Marshmallow while your phone is unplugged and idle.  Another big improvement is the alert slide/silent mode issue where some users were accidentally turning on their phones while dropping it into their pockets.  This, appears at least, to have been fixed with this update.

Download The Complete Set of OnePlus 3 Wallpapers

Yesterday I posted the stock wallpaper for the OnePlus 3 and based on traffic, a lot of you have enjoyed it.  I’ve not collected all of the stock wallpapers that come on the device and have them here for you to download.  In all, there are 5 wallpapers with the OP3 including the stock wallpaper with the “Never Settle” branding.  All five of the wallpapers are posted after the break so if you want to get them, continue on.  All of these wallpapers were created by Hampus Olsson who was also the creator of the wallpapers for the OnePlus 2.  The work is beautiful in my view and I thought the same of the ones for the OP2.  Those wallpapers, by-the-way, you can find on the Wallpaper Page.

Download The OnePlus 3 Wallpaper

As everyone knows by now, the OnePlus 3 was launched today by OnePlus.  You can get all the specs on this year’s “Flagship Killer” from the company from this post I made earlier.  As with any new phone however, the real treat for many is getting the stock wallpaper.  Now you can do that right here.  After the break you will find the stock or default wallpaper for the OnePlus 3 available for you to download and put on your own device.  It is beautiful wallpaper in my opinion that is colorful and artistic.

OnePlus Abandons Invite System for OnePlus 3

As I posted yesterday, OnePlus plans to launch their next flagship device, the OnePlus 3, on June 15th.  Perhaps the better news for OnePlus fans is the fact that, for the first time, you won’t need an invite to purchase the company’s new phone the day it goes on sale.  That’s right, the invites are gone!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with what I’m referring to, let me give you some background.  With the launch of the original OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X, the company required that you have an invite to purchase the phone.  An invite was acquired by requesting one from the company and later by contributing to their forums, you could move up in queue.  The idea for OnePlus was to allow them to see a reasonable representation of demand for the device so they could keep manufacturing overhead (extra inventory down) under control.  It was a great concept for the company, but one that pretty much failed from a customer experience perspective.
