OnePlus’s debut truly wireless Buds are all set to go official alongside the Nord. But ahead of tomorrow’s unveiling, the company has been readying its existing flagship line to support the new accessory right from day one. The latest OxygenOS updates for the 8 and 8 Pro deliver not just the most recent Android security patches, but also introduce compatibility with the abundantly leaked Buds.
Both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro share the same changelog that also includes some general improvements. Now, while we're talking about earbud support for OnePlus phones, let's be clear: the Buds will likely work with just about any smartphone on the market. That said, OnePlus phones might get some special treatment in the form of an AirPods-esque quick pairing screen, though we can’t be sure of the latter just yet. What we do know is that the latest OxygenOS build adds the OnePlus Pods app (available on APK Mirror), which gave away quite a bit about the unannounced Buds recently.
In addition, you’re getting the standard stuff like general improvements and fixes across the board, along with some optimizations to network performance. For Indian OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro users, the company has added a new Red Cable Club membership card in the Shelf, which was previously accessible only through the Settings app. Finally, the two OnePlus flagships are being bumped to the latest security level, which is always nice to see.
