Everything that’s new in OxygenOS
Have a OnePlus phone? Here’s what’s new with your latest update.
OxygenOS is the software that powers OnePlus phones, and even if you’re not enrolled in the Open Beta, it’s still frequently updated with new features and bug fixes to keep an eye out for.
It can be tough to keep track of what’s new, so we’ll be updating this guide with each new OxygenOS update that’s rolled out.
July 20, 2018 — OnePlus 3/3T get July 2018 security patch with OxygenOS 5.0.4
Have a OnePlus 3 or 3T? You should be getting an OTA update soon that updates it to OxygenOS 5.0.4.
This is a pretty minor update, with the highlight being the July 2018 security patch. On the camera side of things, OnePlus has added a fix for an issue when adjusting manual ISO in third-party camera apps and improved the image quality for the front-facing camera.
You’ll also find bug fixes for a parallel WhatsApp crash issue and problems users have had when zooming in with the front camera in Snapchat.
This update is rolling out to all OnePlus 3/3T owners now, and if you have the phone but it’s enrolled in the Open Beta, OnePlus says it’ll update the download link once the global rollout is finished so you can switch back to a stable build now that the beta program has ended for the two older phones.

The update should be rolling out to select regions starting later today, and will be available more widely from July 20.
