If you’re using OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T then you can move to the Settings > System > System Update, to check the new updates. As there are sometimes when OTA notification does not arrive, so it’s better to check updates manually. In case, there’s no new update, then I suggest you to wait for a few days or sideload the update manually.

But before updating your smartphone, make sure to charge your smartphone to at least 30% and also take a backup of important data.
