While OnePlus deals with the fallout surrounding the fact that Netflix subscribers can’t even view content in high-quality on the OnePlus 5T, the company just released a new update for the OnePlus 5. This update isn’t too substantial, although it does bring along a few major bug fixes.
- GPS improvements
- Fixed issue of not able to set customized alarm ringtone
- Fixed issue of sharing emoji from Bitmoji
- Updated Android security patch to October
- General bug fixes
As you can see in the changelog above, the update to OxygenOS 4.5.15 includes improvements to the GPS chip, as well as bringing the October Android security patch. Sure, we can hem and haw about the fact that this is still a few months behind, but some updates are better than none.
Considering the fact that this is the full release of the software, you don’t have to worry about flashing the software. Instead, OnePlus is rolling out the update Over-the-Air, meaning that you can smash that “check for updates” button until it arrives on your device.
Last week we saw a new update roll out to the OnePlus 5T which brought a few camera improvements, but it seems that won’t be coming to the OP5 just yet. In the meantime, be sure to check out the OnePlus website as the company is celebrating its 4th anniversary with a series of deals and prize drawings.
