Taking a look at the Weather app, users will notice improved scrolling and ease in rearranging or deleting Weather cards. Users can simply tap and hold on the cards to delete or rearrange them in the app. The new update also allows users to use the app regardless of access to GPS location. Moving to the Phone app, users are likely to notice improvements in app animation effects and contact search. OnePlus has also optimized the Quick Responses section while adding the ability to edit these responses. Beyond this, OnePlus also made improvements to the system stability along with numerous bug fixes.
Like any other Open Beta update in the past, the new builds will be rolling out in a phased manner. This means that if you have still not received the update then it is likely to reach your device in coming days. Given that these are the last Open Beta builds that both these devices will get, users are almost certainly going to use the rollback build. This will ensure that their devices received official stable updates in the future. One thing to note here is that the rollback build will wipe all the data from your device.
