OnePlus just rolled out a new November 2020 OTA update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones. Just yesterday, the entire OnePlus 7 series got a similar update with the same OOS 10.3.7 build. Oxygen OS 10.3.7 OTA for the OnePlus 6 also features the latest November 2020 security patch level for the global and EU variants. It is a minor OTA update with just the Android security level bump and some bug fixes.
While the Oxygen OS 10.3.7 updated the Android Security to November 2020 security patch, it did not update the Google Mobile Services (i.e. the stock Google apps) to August 2020; as it did with the OnePlus 7 series. This could have saved a few MBs of phone storage. However, the update does bring some critical bug fixes and a couple of new features to the OnePlus 6 series.
For one, you will notice a newly added “Hide silent notifications in status bar” feature in settings. This will filter out unimportant notifications, making the notification panel cleaner and easier to manage. You can find this update under Settings>Apps & Notifications> Notifications> Advanced> Hide silent notifications in status bar. The latest update also fixed the issue with the screenshot failing. A huge update to game Space is also here. Check out the full changelog below.
The bi-monthly OTA update for the OnePlus 6 series is here with small changes. We are still waiting for the stable or beta Android 11 update for the OnePlus 6 and 6T. While it’s skeptical whether OnePlus will release Oxygen OS 11 to the OnePlus 6 series or not, it is highly recommended to upgrade to OOS 10.3.7.
