OnePlus has a reputation for being behind on software updates, especially after launching new devices. And if the launch of its new flagship series is only days away, the brand hasn’t entirely forgotten about last year’s phones. A recent beta update for the OnePlus 8T also contains a range of bug fixes as well as the March protection patch.
This latest release, known in North America as OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 and in the rest of the world as OxygenOS 18.104.22.168, will first be available on phones in India before being rolled out to the rest of the world. The majority of the updates are intended to address minor system issues such as the risk of random double-taps when typing and the inability to show the time accurately on the home screen when the language is set to Arabic.

However, a few of the modifications are more significant: There are no longer any playback problems while playing videos shot in 4K Cine format at 60FPS, and a flaw that caused alarms to go off schedule on workdays has been patched.
While OnePlus managed to have March’s security patch out during the month — which it neglected to achieve for January’s update — a fresh set of security patches for April may be out until this update hits the majority of users. Given that the phone did not get the February fix, we will have to wait until May for another security-focused update for the OnePlus 8T.
