Oxygen OS 13 for OnePlus 8 8pro 8t devices

Last year, OnePlus successfully rolled out Oxygen OS 13 stable firmware update to the entire OnePlus 8 series. However, due to carrier restrictions in the United States, carrier variants like T-Mobile and Verizon were left out. After almost 6 months of waiting, T-Mobile has finally released Android 13 (based on OxygenOS 13) for OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8T phones.
