OnePlus has established its name as one of the most preferred brands for people who want most of their devices, especially because of the company’s frequent software updates that it pushes to even years old devices. The latest software update from OnePlus comes as a part of Open Beta program for OnePlus 5 (Open Beta 29), OnePlus 5T (Open Beta 27), OnePlus 6 (Open Beta 15), and OnePlus 6T (Open Beta 7), with various tweaks including improvement for the photo editor tool in the Gallery app, the weather app, and more.
