OnePlus has been rolling out security patches every two months now, which is a good sign. These security-focused updates help to ensure your phone is as safe as can be from any potential bugs or issues. These bug fixes or any improvements may sound insignificant, but they do, in the larger scheme of things, make small changes necessary for the safety of your device.

Currently, the update is rolling out via a staged rollout, according to the report by XDADevelopers. Also, you cannot use a VPN anymore to force the update.

As far as the OnePlus 6T is concerned, the company has finally put out its official first teaser of the OnePlus 6T giving the OnePlus fans an assurance of its arrival.
