The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are no longer the hot new phone on the block, but both phones continue to receive early access to new software through the Open Beta program. OxygenOS Open Beta 5 is now rolling out to both devices, containing November security patches and a few other changes.

The update is now being pushed to OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones in the Open Beta program. The most important change is the upgraded security patch level, but there are also bug fixes for calling, alarms, NFC, Play Store, split-screen, and other functions. This is definitely an update you'll want to install as soon as you get it.
