We knew it was coming, but didn’t know when. Android 10 has finally come to the OnePlus 6 and 6T devices after a couple of false starts during November and December. The changelog is pretty comprehensive and matches up with what you’d expect when Android 10 rolls out to devices.

Both the OnePlus 6 and 6T we have on hand got the updates on the same day so it’s rolling out to devices quickly now if you’re yet to see the updates.
If you’re super keen to get updates for your OnePlus device, you probably already know but the Oxygen Updater app will often get them to you before being released to all devices as an OTA update. It is great to see a company update phones that are 12 and 18 months old so quickly — many others need to pay attention to this service that OnePlus provides.
