LineageOS ROM releases first builds based on Android 10 (Update: Builds are back)

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices. However, Lineage has been a bit slow to roll out a version based on Android 10 ⁠— the Pie-based ROM was already available by this time last year. Thankfully, the next major version of LineageOS seems to be just around the corner.

OxygenOS v10.3.2 for OnePlus 6 and 6T brings February security patch

After going through a rough spell lately, OnePlus is back on track with its release schedule and is keeping up with its commitment to push bi-monthly security updates. It released the December patch to the OnePlus 6T and 6 late last month, along with a slew of minor fixes, and now the two 2018 flagships are getting a bump to the February level with the newest update.

OnePlus 6 and 6T are receiving OxygenOS Open Beta 5

OnePlus' OxygenOS is among the best custom Android skins out there as it enhances the OS with thoughtful additions without changing up too much. The company is hard at work continuously updating this software and regularly publishes betas to make sure new releases are as bug-free as possible. As such, the manufacturer has just announced the fifth Open Beta for the OnePlus 6 and 6T.

Latest OxygenOS update for OnePlus 6 and 6T packs December's security patches, plus piles and piles of bug fixes

Following the ridiculously long Android 10 update fiasco for the OnePlus 6 and 6T, a new stable v10.3.1  OxygenOS update for the two devices has started rolling out. Apart from a bump to the December 2019 security patches, the changelog is nothing but fixes: Hotspot Wi-Fi fixes, fingerprint unlock fixes, camera crash fixes, and the omnipresent but undefined system stability and general bug fixes.

OnePlus 6 and 6T get minor upgrades with Android 10 Open Beta 4 (Updated)

OnePlus has been on something of an epic journey with its stable Android 10 updates for the OnePlus 6 and 6T, rolling them out before having to pull them due to a ton of bugs and performance issues. All seems back to normal now, so it's a good time for another Open Beta, the OTAs for which have just been made available.

OnePlus enters 2020 more successful than ever—but it can't rest on its laurels

As 2019 ends and we enter a new decade, I felt the story of OnePlus deserved a bit more examination. In an email interview with CMO Kyle Kiang, I probed the history of a company that is often as shocking in its successes as it is in its marketing misfires. As it crests its sixth year as a smartphone vendor, it's more competitive than ever, coming a long way from the days when it could barely manage to build enough $349 OnePlus Ones using a tightly controlled and very annoying invitation system.

OnePlus has also transformed in ways I don't believe any of us predicted, going from a scrappy, value-first smartphone maker to a legitimate competitor in a field that includes some of the world's most recognizable brands: Samsung, Apple, and Google.

OnePlus 6 and 6T receive another Android 10 Open Beta after tricky stable rollout

OnePlus usually provides its handsets with timely Android updates, though with the OnePlus 6 and 6T, it slipped up quite a bit. The devices got a stable Android 10 version in November, but the software turned out to be buggy, so OnePlus had to stop the rollout and started slowly pushing out a hotfix  — effectively leaving a majority of users on a four-month-old security patch level. It looks like the company is continuing to fix bugs and might be readying another stable point release soon as it has just launched Android 10 Open Beta 3 for the phones.

Security updates on the OnePlus 6 and 6T are an utter mess right now

OnePlus often prides itself on the solid software support it extends to its relatively small smartphone lineup, and rightly so. Handsets as old as the OnePlus 5 (the one with a 16:9 display, remember?) are confirmed to get Android 10, while this year’s 7 series was updated months ago. Even the OnePlus 7T came out running Android 10 in the same month Pixels got their stable builds. Two phones that couldn’t be a part of this flattering tale are last year’s OnePlus 6 and 6T that have been stuck on Android Pie while OnePlus is struggling to put their Android 10 packages together.

OnePlus shares Android 10 rollout schedule for OnePlus 6T, 6, 5T, and 5

The official rollout of Android 10 has already started for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, but older OnePlus devices are still without the latest software. That won't be the case for too much longer, though, at least for some phones. OnePlus has shared a tentative schedule of when the OnePlus 6T, 6, 5T, and 5 will see the update, and it's as soon as this month.
