OnePlus has honored its promise to keep up on software updates. The company has started rolling out an update to its forked version of Android, Oxygen OS 2.2.0, to the OnePlus 2.
The software update includes a variety of security patches and bug fixes, including a fix for a bug associated with the photo sphere and panorama abilities in the Google Camera app. There’s also a fix for an ongoing issue with dual SIM card selection, where the OnePlus 2 had issues switching between the default SIM and the secondary one. And, as an added bonus, the update includes a batch of OnePlus-made holiday wallpapers to dress up your device with a little holiday spirit.
OnePlus has published the full change log for OxygenOS 2.2.0. Fixes include:
- Fixed dual SIM preference selection issues in settings
- Added NTFS and exFAT support for OTG
- Fixed Google Camera photo sphere and panorama bugs
- Screen temperature can now be adjusted from quick settings
- Added hide search bar option in launcher settings
- Security patches
- Holiday wallpapers
- General bug fixes and optimizations
The rollout is incremental. OnePlus asks that you “please be patient if you don’t get it right away.” If you’re rooted, you can flash the OTA update yourself.
Why this matters: OnePlus’s Oxygen OS is one of the better-looking Android forks out there, and it’s refreshing to see the company committed to keeping its devices updated. It’s especially important to see third-party Android device makers committed to software updates given Google’s insistence that its OEM partners commit to monthly security updates.
