OnePlus 6 & 6T Update Fixes Black Screen Issue, Adds New Security Patch


The OnePlus 6 and 6T are now receiving a new update that fixes the black screen issue. That is not the only entry in the changelog, but it's probably the most important one.

This update comes marked as OxygenOS 10.3.3, and the company is already rolling it out. Do note that we're looking at a staged update here, so you may not be available to download it straight away.

All users should be able to download and install this update within a week, if everything goes according to plan. This is an over-the-air (OTA) update, by the way.


This update fixes the black screen issue on the OnePlus 6 & 6T

In any case, the OnePlus 6 and 6T users have been having an issue with a black screen randomly appearing while playing games. This was not an issue for non-gamers, though.

That issue will be fixed after you install this update. In addition to that, this update also brings a new Android security patch, for April. The GMS package also got updated here, to a version from February this year.

In the 'System' part of this changelog, the company also listed improved system stability and general bug fixes. Some network improvements have been rolled out to users in Denmark and India. To be more specific, to users of Telenor and RJIO in those two countries, respectively.


On top of that, the company also issued Cloud Sync updates for users in India. To be more specific, it updated its CloudService to version 2.0. That is completely India-specific, though.

Both the OnePlus 6 and 6T were announced back in 2018. The two phones are still getting updates, it's nice to see that the company is still working hard to improve them.

This particular update did not bring any new features to users, at least when we look at it globally. Fixes are always welcomed, though. The company may roll out some new features in the future, though, of course.


Both of these phones have been rockin' Android 10 for quite some time now

The OnePlus 6 and 6T users are already rocking Android 10 on their devices. The company released that update quite some time ago for the two phones.

Both devices are running better than ever on Android 10, at least from our experience. That is not surprising, though, considering the optimization level of OxygenOS, and the fact that both are still quite powerful.

Once this update becomes available on your device, the phone will notify you via a notification, presuming that option is not disabled, of course. This update will not wipe your data, or anything of the sort.
