As a customary practice, OnePlus is rolling out the updates in a staged fashion, so it will only reach a handful of users at first. Once the company confirms that there aren’t any major issues with the update, it should start rolling out to more users. Notably, the OnePlus 8T hasn’t received any new update yet, although it is usually serviced alongside the regular 8 series.
