Last week, T-Mobile announced its plans for launching the OnePlus 7T that is expected to be released sometime this month. The mobile telecommunications company is back with another good news for the manufacturer’s predecessor, the OnePlus 6T. This is regarding a software update that will be available for the smartphones sold by the carrier.
What Does the Update Have to Offer?
The update offered is primarily an Android security patch update that was released in August 2019. It also helps users in experiencing enhancements to the performance of their handsets. Moreover, the Google Maps app is also improvised to a later version with this update.
The Android update is not very big and has a size of 260.6MB and is named A6013_34_190814. This gets installed very fast in just a few seconds. Your phone will reboot automatically after the process and you can take advantage of the new features. It is being offered right now as an over-the-air update. Reddit user engcrx and TmoNews reader Caleb have received the same.
However, if you have still not got the update on your OnePlus 6T, you can check for it manually. All that you have to do is access the Settings app and tap on the System menu. In the System menu, you can look for the update under Check for update option in the System update submenu. This way, you will not have to wait for the latest offering from the manufacturer.
Using the Smartphone During the Installation
You will not be able to use your OnePlus 6T smartphone to make or receive calls when the update is being installed. It won’t also be possible to make emergency calls during this time.
If you would like to make calls during the installation process, then the installation must be stopped using the Pause option. You can resume the update after you are done with your calls.
Information on the Phone
The update does not affect the information on your handset in any way. All the content is retained and you can access them like before after the installation. Therefore, there is no need to worry about losing your contacts or other favorite content because of the update.
This is the latest update that T-Mobile is sending out for its OnePlus 6T two months after the one in August this year. This included a July 2019 Android security patch and was slightly bigger with 308.9MB file size. Interestingly, unlocked models received this update after the locked ones.
