OnePlus’ 2018 flagships, the OnePlus 6 and 6T, have reached the end of their software support.
OnePlus has confirmed that its 4-year-old flagship smartphones, the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T, will no longer get software updates. This comes after the firm just issued its most current software update for both smartphones.
Software Updates for the OnePlus 6 and 6T are no longer available
OnePlus just confirmed the news in an official remark on its community forum page, claiming that after providing three major software updates and more than three years of security patches, “it’s now time to conclude a chapter and declare the end of OnePlus 6 and 6T official software support.”
In 2018, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 6 and 6T smartphones. Following the announcement, the firm stated that its flagship handsets will receive two major Android upgrades and three years of security patches in early 2019. Last year, however, the firm released a new Software Maintenance Schedule for its flagship handsets, which guaranteed three major Android upgrades and four years of security patches.
The new timetable does not apply to previous flagships such as the OnePlus 6 and 6T, which is now clear! However, in late 2021, the business released security patches for both devices, which fixed many issues. That will not be the case in the future.
“We would like to share a special word of appreciation to all the beta testers, that, since 2018, have been testing features before they would get released to the stable version,” A member of the OnePlus team commented on the thread.
If you possess the OnePlus 6 or 6T, you won’t have to get rid of it right now, happily. Although official software updates will cease coming to your smartphone, you may still use unofficial ROMs like the Syberia Project ROM or the Pixel Experience ROM to keep it working for another year or two.
