Download OxygenOS / for OnePlus 8T

OnePlus 8T owners can upgrade their phones to the newer OxygenOS and software to stay updated to the newest security patch. As usual, the update hits devices in batches which means some users will get the update early while the remaining users will get it in the next few days. Sometimes, we don’t get update notifications and so you can also verify it manually from Settings > System > System Update.

Luckily, OnePlus allows users to install incremental OTA zip files. It means if you want to update immediately if the new update doesn’t show up, you can use the OTA zip file. You can download the OnePlus 8T OxygenOS & OTA files from the Oxygen Updater app. And after downloading, head to System Update and select local upgrade. Before upgrading, always make sure to take a full backup and charge your phone to at least 50%.
