Today is the start of an update week for OnePlus users looking for the update to OxygenOS 2.0, known as OxygenOS 2.1. OnePlus announced today that it would start rolling out the update today, with only a few users getting it. The remaining users will see the update within the week: “We are starting the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 2.1.0. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today and if all goes well, we’ll start the broader rollout tomorrow,” the company said about the update. This means that no, not everyone will see it today, but you may be one of the lucky ones.
OxygenOS 2.1 will bring a new manual mode for photographers to customize their photos and lighting conditions, RAW support for third-party photography apps, the addition of a color slider to customize your screen tone, phone performance improvements to reduce lag when coming out of airplane mode, and third-party app compatibility issues. There are a number of bug fixes according to OnePlus;
- We’ve added manual mode for all you photography enthusiasts. Hope this will give you more control for capturing that perfect moment.
- Raw support is now enabled for 3rd party camera apps that support this format
- There’s a new color balance slider in Display for adjusting the color tone of your screen. You can now go warmer or cooler as you please.
- Added Exchange support.
- We fixed some issues that were causing problems with popular 3rd party apps.
- Telephony service improvements so you no longer get the lag when you turn on/off airplane mode.
OxygenOS is OnePlus’s own operating system created for its own users. Prior to OxygenOS 2.1, OnePlus introduced off-screen gestures, app permissions, custom icons, and even the SwiftKey Keyboard to Oxygen. Other features include a double-tap-to-wake gesture and a feature called Shelf (introduced with OxygenOS 2.0 and the OnePlus 2) that allows you to access your most-used apps.
