OnePlus 6 and 6T – Remember how OnePlus used to be so quick to update their phones with new Android versions? Those were the days, for sure. OnePlus is now testing Android 11 for the OnePlus 6 and 6T, whereas Google is already testing Android 12 and has released numerous beta releases.
Granted, these are ancient phones, and despite the lengthy delay, it’s good to see them upgraded to Android 11. Back in April, the firm said it will release an Open Beta edition of OxygenOS 11 for the iPhone 6 and 6T based on Android 11 in August, but it just released it today, a month or so ahead of schedule. That, we think, is a promising indication for the future.
This is an early build, according to OnePlus, released to “collect input before being formally published.” Because beta software is less reliable than regular releases, you shouldn’t install it on your primary device. Regardless, create a backup of your data before continuing.
If you’re using the most recent stable release of the OnePlus 6 or 6T, you may join the Open Beta by going to the Source link below and installing the updated software through the link provided there. Following the initial beta, more betas will be available as over-the-air upgrades.
However, bear in mind that the completed stable version will not be delivered via OTA; you will have to manually download and install it. If you’re using a previous OnePlus 6 or 6T Open Beta release, the new one based on Android 11 will be available over-the-air soon.
OxygenOS 11 introduces a new user interface with changes to Game Space, a new camera UI, Ambient Display updates, Dark Mode improvements, and a new Shelf interface with enhanced weather widget animation.
