OnePlus has quietly rolled out an updated version of its stable software for the OnePlus 6. OxygenOS 9.0.1 is now reportedly available for users of the OnePlus 6 on the stable software path as an OTA download, and follows the official OxygenOS 9.0 software package that took the OnePlus 6 to Android 9 Pie. While it is a new version, it appears to have no major changes.
Indeed, the changelog on the software update is the same as that of the OxygenOS 9.0 update, which shows the major changes including the change of Android version and the changed UI. There are no differences in the changelog, suggesting that this could simply hold a few small fixes and optimizations. OnePlus usually went the same way as Huawei with its custom software naming conventions, jumping straight from OxygenOS version 5 to version 9.0, to coincide with the Android version number.
While software updates were coming a lot more often till last month, OnePlus seems to have shifted its resources towards the impending arrival of the OnePlus 6T. Apart from the slow updates to both the stable and open beta programs for the OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 series have also had their Android 9 Pie roll-out delayed. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 6T is expected to come with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box, suggesting that updates and feature additions for the current line-up might be on hold till after the launch of the OnePlus 6T.
