While OnePlus is currently focused on the OnePlus 7T and the 7T Pro, today marks the end of the road for the OnePlus 3 and the 3T. OnePlus is sending out the final security updates for the handsets, which means that it will no longer receive official security support from OnePlus. The update itself doesn’t bring anything new on board, merely refreshing the security update version to October 2019.
It’s worth noting that OnePlus offers 36-months support for every device it sells, with 24 of those months covering software updates. For the remaining 12 months, customers receive bi-monthly security patches. Considering the fact that the OnePlus 3T was launched in November 2016, the company has well and truly lived up to its word.
OnePlus 3 and 3T owners received the Android 9.0 Pie update in May this year, so it’s clear that the company has done more than it promised since software support should have technically ended by November 2018. This should come as good news for customers of recent OnePlus flagships. Although it can get annoying when the company releases an upgraded flagship a few months later, customers can take solace in the fact that their phone will receive security updates for a period of 3 years since its arrival on the shelves.
If you own either of the two smartphones, the update should be hitting your devices just about now. But if you’re not seeing it on your phone yet, be sure to head over to the Settings panel to pull it manually.
