The 2017 devices from OnePlus, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, are now receiving the latest version of the OxygenOS Open Beta software. The phones were launched in June 2017 and November 2017, respectively, and have been on the OxygenOS Open Beta program for some months now. The latest Open Beta for the phones are version 16 for the OnePlus 5 and version 14 for the OnePlus 5T.
The changelog for the update shows that there aren’t too many changes, with only small tweaks for the calendar app and OnePlus Switch. A calendar widget compatibility issue in the Shelf function has been fixed, the keyboard not popping up when creating a new schedule has been fixed, and OnePlus Switch now has an optimized app and data classification list.
Bear in mind that the Open Beta program runs software that isn’t as stable as the regular stock software for the phones, and isn’t recommended for novice users. You have to actively place your phone on the Open Beta path, after which you no longer get OTA updates for the stable software. The benefits of this are that OnePlus rolls out new features and tweaks to the Open Beta path early, giving users access to these new features before the full software path.
