Happy news to OnePlus 5/5T users as latest OxygenOS update adds new features to last year’s flagship OnePlus devices. Just weeks after seeding new battery saving features through Oxygen OS 5.1.4, OnePlus has started rolling out the Oxygen OS 5.1.5 with not just the latest security package but also adds support for Project Treble.
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will thus get the promised Project Treble support which was earlier available through Open beta. Project Treble is what allows developers to make updates and ROMs available at a faster rate by separating hardware from software when updating an Android device. While support for Treble isn’t particularly customer-centric, faster updates will be no short of a blessing for an old device like the OnePlus 5 which is more than a year old.
While the changelog doesn’t necessarily show the addition of Project Treble, what it does reveal is that OxygenOS 5.1.5 has added the latest August 2018 batch of Android security updates to the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Weighing in at a sizeable 1.6GB, the latest update also includes a handy update which no longer needs you to confirm a PIN if it’s entered correctly. The feature can be toggled on by heading over to Settings > Security & lock screen > Screen lock > PIN.
Since this is a staged update, we’d advise you to wait a few days till OnePlus rolls out the latest update to your OnePlus 5/5T. If not, try manually checking for updates by heading over to Settings > About Phone.
