OxygenOS released for OnePlus 8/8 Pro with October patch


OxygenOS based on Android 11 is now rolling out for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro with the October 2021 security patch and also adds the Files by Google app.

[Update 10/21]: OxygenOS is also deployed for the OnePlus 8T with what is the exactly the same changelog – including the Files by Google application. This update is available in multiple versions with OxygenOS for those in India, while North American and European owners should see OxygenOS

While Android 12 has now officially arrived on Google Pixel phones, OnePlus has made a minor update to the old flagship duo and notified users via the usual Forum announcement message. OxygenOS is about as minor as it gets when it comes to updates, but there’s one notable addition in the form of Files by Google. It doesn’t seem to remove the default OnePlus File Manager app which in many ways is better for in-depth file management, but it is notable nonetheless.

Considering the haphazard rate at which regular security patches are delivered to OnePlus devices, it’s also nice to see the very latest October 2021 security patch as part of the OxygenOS update here. This means that the OnePlus 8 series is the Chinese company’s most recent line of devices at the time of publication.

OxygenOS Update Change Log for OnePlus 8/8 Pro

  • System
    • Adding files by Google, find files faster with simple search and navigation
    • Android security patch update to 2021.10
    • Improved system stability
    • Fixed known issues

So even though it’s not Android 12 – which is expected over the next few months – at least OnePlus has managed to update the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro with a recent security patch. If you have either of the handsets, an OTA update should be available in the coming days. Otherwise, it may be worth checking Oxygen update if you are happy to load the OxygenOS OTA .zip file and manually flash it.
