Rejoice, OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro owners. Because OnePlus is now rolling out a new OxygenOS update for the duo via OTA. Interestingly, along with the latest June 2021 security patch, the update also brings much more to the table.
Notably, as per a report by 9To5Google, the update brings several camera fixes which users were complaining about for a long time.
The update is noticeably lightweight, but we would advise you to grab this update via a stable Wi-Fi or mobile data connection. Moreover, it is also recommended to upgrade your phone with the latest available security patch, which in our case is the June 2021 patch.
