OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users are finally getting the new Android 10 OS. The software update comes packaged as OxygenOS version 10.0, as announced on the official OnePlus forum.
If you can’t see the update yet, don’t worry. The company is rolling it out in stages to make sure any critical bugs get reported and fixed. This way, all users won’t be hit at once if there is any issue with the software.
In case you’re thinking of tricking the update into being available for your device by using a VPN, it won’t work. The software is being rolled out randomly to a limited number of OnePlus 6 and 6T users, and not by region.

Apart from a fresh new user interface design, Android 10 brings the ability to block spam by keywords in the Messages application. Location permissions have been tweaked to add an additional layer of privacy.
This means you can enjoy greater control over of how each application utilizes your live location data by opting from “always allow”, “allow only while using the app”, “forbid” or “don’t ask again once prohibited”.
The update allows you to switch between left or right for recent apps thanks to the addition of the navigation bar at the bottom. Inward swipes from the left or right side of the display have been enabled too so that you can go back easily.
There’s one major feature that is not coming with this Android 10 update though – “Hide Notch” which lets you disguise the display cutout notch on the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T is currently unavailable.
