OnePlus 3T’s first software update now arriving, and no it isn’t Nougat

by John_A

As we all wait for Nougat, there’s a quick update to Marshmallow with welcomed fixes.

The OnePlus 3T’s first software update isn’t a substantial one — coming in at just 24MB — but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. The update is beginning an “incremental” roll-out starting today, and should be available to all OnePlus 3T owners shortly.


Here’s the full list of changes from OnePlus:

  • Optimizations for US-TMO Network
  • Optimizations to Reduce Lag when Battery is below 5%
  • Optimized Bluetooth Connectivity for Mazda Cars
  • Optimized Battery Saving Mode: GPS and Orientation Preferences will be restored when Battery Saving Mode is closed.
  • Fixed Flashlight Usability Issue in WhatsApp
  • Increased System Stability
  • Implemented Various Bug Fixes

Most people will be happy to see that there are improvements to T-Mobile network performance, as well as changes to make the phone perform better at low battery levels and properly restore settings when returning from Battery Saving Mode. That’s a lot to pack into such a small update.

We’re now in the middle of December, and that means there are just a couple weeks left for OnePlus to roll out the Nougat update officially to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. We’re waiting (somewhat) patiently for the update, but what we saw in a pre-release version has us extremely excited to try it out in an official capacity.
